Sharpening the Ax: Why You Can Take All the Action in the World and Still Not Have Success

Love it? Hate it? Let me know...

    Great message, as usual. But Abraham Lincoln would use an AX or a SAW to cut down a tree (not a knife). And you don’t sharpen one knife by scraping it against another (you use a sharpening stone or steel at a precise angle). And you would never throw a carefully sharpened knife (those are cleavers, aren’t they? Does your chef know you borrowed them?) into the ground (OK, sand is not as bad, but still… ). But your point is excellent, and your story still works… so thanks.

      My Thai coconut knives are the best I could do! I wasn’t aiming for accuracy here… I was aiming for effect. Lol 😉

    That was so useful. To hear it’s like breadcrumbs and not light lightening.
    Now I’m feeling in sync… yes yes yes.
    Thank you for sharing that wisdom !
    Regards.
