Often times in life we hear questions like "What is the most significant factor that contributed ..." , "What is that one thing that made you...", "If you could bring your career down to one thing, what would it be?"
It's funny how we've come to arrive at a thought pattern as this.
Nature itself would laugh at such questions.
It's this thinking that makes many think, they only need an idea to get that big break. Ideas aren't worthless, but "that idea" is not enough.
An idea doesn't make a whole. You need that idea plus execution and that execution is a long list of many things.
Many times we think just one virtue is needed; just one habit; just one big break; just one book;
As we grow older in life we find that every single thing that works, is a whole of many aggregated parts.
Savings alone is not sufficient to become wealthy, you must add smart investment decisions
Waking up early daily is not the singular habit that will change your life forever. That habit must be aided by another good habit.
Any one who has paid attention to life would have noticed that all that things are aggregations of many things.
One virtue/habit doesn't make you... "there". You'd discover that our lives is an aggregation of many good parts.
