Remember when we were in school and there would be “extra credit” test questions? Or we could do an extra credit project if we thought we needed a boost in a class — something we’d do that was more than expected to earn bonus points. I underestimated the importance of doing extra credit in all areas of my life until later.
I have no clue whether “extra credit” still exists in schools — but it should. Doing a bit of extra credit in the things I do is one of the top ten reasons why I’m now an improbable millionaire. Consciously doing “extra” is a good thing. Doing it subconsciously is even better.
