What’s Your One Kick?


As we start a new year, we come up with things we need to achieve…goals, targets and the very popular  “New Year’s Resolution”. While it is highly recommended to have goals and resolutions, we can easily get swamped and have all our efforts diluted. That in fact, is the key to an average life. No one becomes exceptional by doing many things averagely.

What is the one thing you can be exceptional at? Find it and zero in on it. That’s the key to an exceptional life.

Growing up, one of my favourite actors was Bruce Lee. Apart from being a great actor, Bruce Lee was also an accomplished martial artist. I recently came across a quote from him that nailed this point: “I fear not the man that has practiced 1,000 different kicks one time. I fear the man who has practiced 1 kick 1,000 times.” – Bruce Lee

So the question is, what’s your one kick? …focus and practice it “1,000 times” instead of practicing so many “kicks” a few times.

What’s that one kick? Do all you can to find that one kick, then give your all to it! Practice it 1,000 times over and over…and even Bruce Lee will fear you 🙂
