To be the best you have to do whatever it takes to be the best. You must take the action that is the only way. You can make excuses and they may be true but if you do not do what it takes then you will not get the results. If nothing else matters besides the end result then you must find a way to get that result. There will be ancillary results but if you get that one result that matters then that is what matters. I hear stories of Steve Jobs and Donald Trump making people mad but in the end they get the job done.
