"It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity."~Publilius Syrus
Are you trying to bring excellence to maturity too quickly? Taking short cuts? Don't.
You need to experience things before they can become part of your learning. In today's microwave society, the "I want it now" crowd may get to where they want, but they won't be able to stay there long...
"Amateurs do it until they get it right, while professionals do it until they can't do it wrong."
What a great thought! Don't just work on it until you do it right, but work on it until you can't do it wrong. Are you doing that? Are your skills honed so well that you can't do them wrong? Why not? We are taught to do something until we get it right, not to work on it until we can't get it wrong.
Think about how things would change in your life if you worked on them until you couldn't do them wrong...and go out there today and work on those things that you can until you can't do them wrong.
Fight the microwave society thinking that you must have everything right now. Realize that through delayed gratification, discipline is born and can be allowed to mature.
Know. Be Known. Make A Difference!
