You don't get any points in life doing things the hard way. - Tim Fargo

   Let's dispel a little myth. Working hard is NOT the key to success. It may be an ingredient, but it isn't the main one. If sheer hard work was the KEY, then the people doing physical labor would be billionaires. Last time I checked it wasn't quite working out that way. It's no slight against the people who choose that path. But it is a choice.

   If you are really after success, it would be wise to define it. If you only have your current location in your GPS, it is going to have some trouble directing you. You must have a destination, and to my way of thinking, you also need to set some parameters for getting there.

   For example, one of my key parameters was FUN. To me, having to pursue a dream while being miserable is not success, it is torture. Even if there is a nice pot of gold at the end of the proverbial rainbow, who wants to toil and sweat all the way there? If it is true that life is the journey, not the destination, then you better be pretty focused on enjoying the ride.
