Blood, Sweat and Work

It takes twenty years to become an overnight success.

- Eddie Cantor

Working the plan: doing this delivers so much. Setting the goals. But even before that: what is it I want to do? Why is it that I want to do this?

Thinking first is the first lesson. There are many things that can be done. Some are simply impossible: I cannot walk from here on earth to the surface of the sun and walk naked on the sun. Not with what I currently know and can do nor am I likely to do so any time in my life.

But there are things I can do, even if I think they are impossible. They might look impossible, but rather than eating it all at once and choking to death, if I break it down into small peices, I can do what I thought was impossible. The cake I ate I did one bite at a time: working it off needs to be done the same way.

Arranging those bites into a doable sequence with measureable progress steps and dates. Recording the progress and failures. Each step has its own mini plan: ways to achieve each step/stage, adapting from previous successes and learning from previous failures. This gets the job done....over time, with patience, sweat, sometimes blood, it gets thte job done.....
