To achieve anything in life requires fight. In some societies you have to fight just to stay alive. In a “First World” society the fight is often against unseen, unnamed forces that don’t want you to succeed. Even more importantly though, one must fight one’s own mind. One must ignore the negative voices that say this or that can’t be done. One must fight laziness and sloppiness. One must fight to figure out what the highest priorities are and to work on them to completion even when the initial excitement of “the new” is gone.
These are the things I’m learning.
