Discipline and Grind
It takes an incredible amount of discipline to continue to work towards a distant future. Boredom will tempt a team to change direction for the sake of entertainment and that will delay or limit the team’s ability to arrive at its chosen destination. Changing direction comes at a cost if it is done simply so that the team can find a change of pace. Greatness can always be traced back to the moment that a team was tempted to stray but overcame it with a faithfulness that makes decisions based on commitment to the destination and not feeling better about my tasks today.
