Regardless of the job, someone is going to be willing to do it. Be it running a company, taking out the garbage, driving a UPS truck, or writing for a newspaper, someone is going to try their hardest to get that job. So if you want it, you’d better be willing to give it your best effort, because someone else is going after it just as hard. There are many out there not willing to give it 100 percent and are complacent with watching someone else step in, which is exactly what will happen if you don’t give it that full effort. So be willing to put in the time, or else be prepared to watch someone else walk away with the prize.
