TN50 #78, Happy Independence Day, 04 July 2022

Hi Team,

Happy Monday, Happy Independence Day America and welcome to The Next 50 #78.

Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, wrote something in a book that I read a couple years ago that is profoundly simple and profoundly significant.  Here’s the quote: “If you want success, figure out the price, then pay it.”  For whatever reason this sentence popped into my head when I woke up this morning.  As my Independence Day “Murph” turned into Independence Day Grilling Prep, turned into Independence Day Beers, the quote came into focus.

“If you want success, figure out the price and pay it.”  Imagine the Founding Fathers of our great nation as they signed their names to the Declaration of Independence back in early July, 1776.  Signing the Declaration was like signing your own death warrant.

“If you want success, figure out the price and pay it.”

Have a good one, Alex
