Sharpen That Fuckin Axe

June 20, 2015

You know those movie scenes where the hero is in prison. Yet, he’s doing pushups and pullups. Reading books. Getting ready. Even though there is no way he can escape?

Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible.
Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises.
Beast in X-Men.
And my favorite, Edmond Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo.

Pretend this is your movie. And you’re perfecting that curveball. Even though there are no signs you’ll be called up for the game.

“It’s better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.”
– Whitney Young Jr.

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
– Abraham Lincoln
