Pushing your chips in

There’s this notion floating around that in order to push your chips in, you have to go all in.

Quit your job, cash out your 401K, take out a huge loan…

Personally, I don’t have the guts to ever push all my chips into the center. Ever. Because I don’t want to quit playing the game. I love it too much.

Instead, I would recommend very quietly, take the one to two hours per day that you own, where no one can tell you what to do and…

Make it productive.

Over time, those hours will add up to something magical.

It’s not sexy. It certainly isn’t heroic. No one is going to write a book about you when it is all said and done. But it is a lot more effective.

Doing something daring, important and worthwhile doesn’t happen overnight. It takes stamina.
