No bull: Do things that challenge you the most
FROM THE DESK OF GRANT CARDONE: Are you a bull rider without a bull? Do you have no mountain to climb, no challenge to accomplish? You need to start doing things again that challenge you.

I want to get those ones that challenge me the most out of my way or I want to conquer them. Either way, I win. If I make the hardest call first and I win, I am on fire!
Now, if I make that most difficult call and I lose, at least it is out of the way—it’s a no-brainer. Most people take the easiest things first. People are not challenging themselves that’s why they’re not motivated. I am telling you this is a big problem with many people at your company. People are setting targets too low and doing simple, easy things every day.
