We take one step forward and two steps back. Effort never guarantees success but it always ensures learning.
All great things happen because of discomfort. If we can persist through the pain and develop patience, there’s usually a rainbow waiting for us at the other end.
But whatever we’re chasing needs to give us purpose. Purpose drives passion which in turn makes it easier to persist through all the CRAP: criticism, rejection assholes, and pressure.
Whenever any that goal gets less sticky, perhaps it's time to pivot or take more risks.
Toggling between the predictable and unpredictable makes us feel more alive.
Pour one out for the emotional journey of creating anything great.
