“Once you identify a problem, don’t tolerate it. Tolerating a problem has the same consequences as failing to identify it. Whether you tolerate it because:

  1. you believe it cannot be solved;
  2. you don’t care enough to solve it;
  3. you can’t muster enough of whatever it takes to solve it;
  4. you don’t have the will to succeed…

then your situation is hopeless.

You need to develop a fierce intolerance of badness of any kind, regardless of its severity.” Ray Dalio
