Persistence and the fallacy of ease

We live in a strange time.

Persistence like a plant Never before in history has there been a cultural view that if you’re doing things right they”ll be easy. Or that difficulty is a sign that you are either dumb, or that people and the fates are against you. These feelings are powerful¬† but in some sense they are just an illusion. The real truth is,¬† more often than we’d like, things are hard and we have to push through the work of doing them in spite of our feelings.

Sometimes it may take a long time to accomplish what we want. Sometimes it seems to be a ridiculously long time.  But, with persistence, like the plant you will succeed.
