Winter’s Surprise Benefit

“It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.” - Henry Ford

When the sky freezes over, so do the people beneath it.

“It’s too cold! I’m just going to sit inside and watch TV all day.”

It’s when everyone else chooses to go into hibernation that warriors-in-training make unfettered progress.

“Sweat during peacetime so as to not bleed during wartime” maintains its application in the mundane endeavors of modern quotidian working-life. The best work often gets done in solitude. What better opportunity to dive deep and produce remarkable art than when the sky is frozen over and everyone else is feeling sorry for themselves?

Sink your teeth into something this winter.
