Sapiens Lacuna (from Vince Lombardi)

“I have never known a really successful man who deep in his heart did not understand the grind, the discipline it takes to win.”

– Vince Lombardi, American Football Coach

A friend sent this in an e-mail. The theme of discipline and hard work keep coming up. Hard work is not enough, it must also be the right kind of work (with attention to execution of a process) but hard work is a necessary component. See Anders Ericsson’s work on Deliberate Practice.
