Patience. Some things simply take longer. They surpass the deadlines we assign them, present problems we failed to anticipate and highlight how poor our effort has been. We often expect to be able to bend and control for speedy results. Yet sometimes the work we do isn’t ready. This is the point many give up. They move on to the next project, building up a collection of unfinished or rushed works. But this is the moment to choose and to decide to learn from what we are actually undertaking. When we toil for the work, giving our best effort each day to it, our patience is rewarded. We have a finished project that has shaped us along the way, moulding our core and equipping us with a wealth of new skills and understandings, and we receive the benefit being lifted from amateur to professional.
