I chant this saying over and over to myself in my head, regularly. As human beings, we value achievement. Our desire is for results. Usually immediately. When we don’t see them, it is easier to chalk ourselves up as failures and give up. Often we procrastinate until action is imperative. Giving the excuse, “I want it to be perfect.”
While there is nothing wrong with desiring quality, it often stands in the way of action. At least, that’s the case for me.
What we often forget is that the day to day drudgery of “trying” (and failing) is a part of success. It can even be argued that it is crucial to success.
