It' all about...


When we say, “It’s all about (something)”, we are saying that it’s the most important thing. We are emphasizing the most important consideration or aspect. We focus on the primary objective. We are stating a conclusion.

1. I’m sure you’ve heard it said before: “It’s all about winning”. On the other extreme, a popular quote says, “It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.” Where do you stand on this?

2. People say, “It’s all about the journey, not the destination.” In the abstract sense I think that’s true, but if the journey is a 20-hour bus ride, then for me it’s all about the destination.

3. When you’re going to do something important, it’s all about the timing – starting at the perfect time. Then again, sometimes we never get started because we’re waiting for the “perfect” time. Sometimes we just need to “grab the bull by the horns” (take the initiative) and simply do whatever is necessary.

4. I really believe that when it comes to learning English, you will be more productive and progress a lot more if you set aside 20 - 30 minutes every day to study or read something, as opposed to doing an expensive immersion course in another country. At the end of the day, it’s all about consistency and continuity. How can you incorporate English learning into your daily routine?


  1. It doesn't matter how many times we fail, it's all about rising up every time we do.
