Its good to get inspiration from wherever you can. Today, I was out in my parent's backyard with my niece. She was picking up small stones (aka 'dirt' and 'eggs') and handing them to me, or her dad, or putting them in a pile. She came across a rather large rock, and went to pick it up. It wouldn't budge. "Its HEAVY", she declared. Then she put down the small rock she still had in her other hand, and, using both, heaved that large rock up and carried it over to give to me.
It was heavy. It was hard to lift. Did she move on to another, lighter, easier rock? Nope. She refocused, and lifted it, because she wasn't going to let a rock beat her.
Next time I think something is "too heavy" or too hard - I'm going to think about my one and a half year old neice lifting that rock. Then refocus, and do it.
