What’s the one thing you do?

Genius is nothing but the power of making a continuous effort. Fix in your mind the thing you are going to do, the thing that is worth while, and then do it with determination. A salesman is a genius who has the power of living up to the motto “This one thing I do,” the power of continuous effort. The genius of being successful can be reached by applying great diligence to this continuous effort; by keeping everlastingly at it. There is no obstacle that cannot be overcome by the man who puts force and intelligence into his work. Obstacles are great only through lack of trying diligently and continuously to overcome them. They will be overcome unless there is an inherent weakness of purpose on our part. — D. R. James
