Being organized makes up for a lot.
It makes us “smarter” than we are because it makes it possible to track and follow through on things – to get things done – which otherwise seem to overwhelm our ability to handle complexity (which has natural limits).
Consistency makes up for a lot.
Doing a little bit toward our goal(s) every day can get a healthy habit established and build momentum to carry us through those inevitable times of less motivation.
Being organized and consistent – as a way of approaching ones’ life – can result in extraordinary success for “ordinary” people.
