We all know the type. They have three jobs, they work 16-20 hours a day, they work on two doctorate degrees concurrently, or they have not taken a day off in years and run their restaurant by themselves. Or they can pick up loose change on the ground using only their butt cheeks. 1) Well, last night I told my co-workers who teased me for using a car for transportation (they all do bicycles everywhere), that I knew somebody who was really into fitness. I mean crazy, insanely great Forrest Gump type running. Besides being a junior college student and holding that school's all time distance running records, a law student, and working at a law firm, this kid runs 100-125 miles a week and told me his goal was to beat the Kenyans (and other top international runners) at a major marathon. I kind of thought he was kidding me. So today, at California's Big Sur Marathon (#3 marathon in the US behind Boston and NYC), he (Daniel Tapia) won it all. And this Tuesday and Thursday he has finals as a second year law student. This guy must have killed the LSAT entry exams for law school since he's only a junior college student, too. You can do this in California if you are exceptionally gifted intellectually. But then to enter a world class marathon for the first time and win it? Some people do everything good. He is now aiming for 2012 Olympic team and Adidas sponsorship. Where does he find the time? 2) A young man I know, not particularly gifted at math or finance, turns down USC's storied MBA school and instead goes to an unknown MBA school from the California State System to the shock of everybody who knows him. He thinks schools and their reputations are a lot of hot air. It's what you do with your MBA and that knowledge, right? MBA is about being an entrepreneur, or so the model goes for the best of the best of wannabe masters of the business universe. Within 12 months of graduating, he starts a company and made $14 million dollars. Not bad, really. If that's not weird enough, he loses out to evil B. Gates and company and goes completely bust, then just picks himself right back up and becomes a millionaire again. Share your stories of extraordinary overachievers.
