Smart People Are Dumb. Failure is Success by Jon Jones is a great insight into the best thing you can do to get ahead in work, relationships, and life: show up. Most people won’t, so you win by default.
And that’s why I say smart people are dumb. “But I’m BETTER than him.” “But I want this MORE than him.” “But he’s so STUPID.” “But he’s ugly!”
But he still wins. Because you create excuses for yourself not to try. Because you’re “too smart” to bother trying, because of X, Y or Z reason.
If you were really smart, wouldn’t you be winning? 🙂
