No one wants to be in the same place forever. There’s always a better way of doing and thinking; perpetual change is happiness.

But change needn’t come all the time. It takes years to develop a craft or finally get the house the way you always wanted it. As many years it takes achieving, it takes just as many years to enjoy it.

Pace yourself. Focus on the things that need to be do now while inching toward the future. Sometimes you need to accelerate; sometimes you need to slow down.

Vision and expectation dominate stagnancy. It takes work to produce the slightest change. The upshot doesn’t matter as much as the positive action.
