What did I Learn

The work works more on you than you work on it
Success does not happen in one step but in small incremental steps over a long period
The pursuit of fleeting emotions is meaningless
A lot of times your best is not good enough. You have to become better than your best.
The more you want from life the more you have to give.
You can't get more time but you can get more leverage on your time
You learn a lot by teaching to someone else
The market pays you what you are worth
Give and you shall receive
