As a response to being named this week’s “Warrior of the Week”, Jordan Zimmerman posted further commentary on his blog. I felt his thoughts on our way of life warranted sharing (link to full article below):
This blog is a sure sign that I’m not the only one out there who has figured out that one of the secrets to success is hard work and little sleep. But I also know that this lifestyle is not for everyone. Maybe you require more than three to four hours of sleep every night. And that’s ok.
The question you should be asking yourself is, “What is my secret to success?”
Once you find the answer, own it…no matter how crazy it may seem. Do you know how many people over the years have told me I’m insane for getting so little sleep and having such large goals? I lost count a long time ago! But I always tell them there’s a thin line between brilliance and insanity. You can’t be normal to be great. Life is not about being normal – it’s about being abnormal.
So figure out what makes you tick…what drives you towards greatness. Now get out there and own it.
If you haven’t subscribed to Jordan Zimmerman’s blog “You Sleep When You Die”, you may want to do that. He’s provides straight talk and a great commentary on the 8pm Warrior way of life.
JZ, thanks for being a great “Warrior of the Week” and we’ll definitely be paying attention (as well as sharing, and retweeting) as you post new blogs, tweets, etc. We’ve added your blog to the 8pm Warrior discussion news feed on Linkedin and we look forward to more discussion.
Have a great day,
