It sounds like the start of a cheat code for a game, doesn’t it?
It’s not – it’s actually just a reflection of our work when we’re getting marginal results.
If we’re up and down, we lack the emotional energy to do our best work.
If we’re left and right, we’re here and there, we lack the focus to master what we’re working on.
If we want a start – or to make real progress on what we’ve started – we need to stay onwards and upwards, centered on your area of focus until it’s your area of genius.
(P.S. It was the “level select” cheat code from the original Sonic The Hedgehog!)
