Daily Quote: Unless You are Willing to Drench yourself in your Work

Unless you are willing to drench yourself in your work beyond the capacity of the average man, you are just not cut out for positions at the top. – James Cash Penney

Are you tired of trying to be extraordinary? Hate standing out from the crowd and achieving more than those around you? Well then, this cartoon can help show you how to stop reaching for the stars and start living your life as yet another totally unremarkable, average citizen.

Of course, if you read Lifehack, then chances are, you’re probably actively trying to improve yourself and your life on a regular basis so this cartoon doesn’t really apply. But it does show you what not to do if you want to be above average -not to accept things at face value, not to accept rules just because they’re rules, to be productive and challenge yourself at work, and, most importantly, to have dreams and strive to achieve them.
