Nothing worth doing was ever easy. The process is always skewed. The learning curve is always steep. There is always a competition. And more often than not our accomplishments are never a xerographic copy of what we desired it in the first place. Driven by the sensibilities we derived from the job half done, we change/ modify our goals sometimes making it more realistic. There is nothing wrong in that too.
What is imperative is that in order to get the job done we have to get our hands dirty. People around us together absorbed in their own perseverance, are painting a beautiful picture. We sometimes spend the whole life getting one pixel right in it. There are no shortcuts. There is no easy way. And the next train to the realm of success leaves in half hours. You have to start now. Get your shit together, nothing ever was achieved by strolling in the park.
