In many ways, what often separates professional athletes, acclaimed artists, or successful companies from those who only achieve mediocrity is an obsession for detail. Some people are quick to be satiated with halfhearted work, while others toil tirelessly at their craft, often at the expense of their personal relationships.
Instead of sulking, our athletes push aside those distractions and continue to work. Continue to chug forward through those icy mornings. Those nights where the pangs of frost bite begin to creep underneath their suits of high tech gear. All for the chance at achieving greatness.
