While having the title of "5th grade spelling bee champ" or "President of the [insert high school or college club name here]" seems impressive in the moment, time slowly erases their significance.
It's just fact. Certain accomplishments fade over time.

Pursuing something of this scale is perhaps the most effective use of our time.
While it may require significant willpower and take 10x the effort, we will often reap 100x the results.
The next time you have to make a big decision, ask yourself if it will contribute to your goal of becoming evergreen.
