Successful people are where they’re at, because they do not have time to worry about right or wrong, how their aunt abused them, how the girl of their dreams viciously dumped them, how the economy is shit, how saving lives is an honourable profession, their kid making his first steps, making money to support their family or anything else such as this for that matter.
People of significance are not tangled within ethics or moral questions. They get the job that matters to them, done.
You either focus on your work or stay focused on the petty things. For each achievement you’re sacrificing something.
