Patience: Building a business


We all get frustrated.

I’m particularly prone to frustration when I see little or no progress after several weeks of working on something new.

Dealing with the temporary frustration of not making progress is an integral part of the path towards excellence.

In fact, it is essential and something that every single elite athlete has had to learn to deal with.

If the pursuit of excellence was easy, everyone would do it.

In fact, this impatience in dealing with frustration is the primary reason that most people  fail to achieve their goals.

Unreasonable expectations time-wise, resulting in unnecessary frustrations, due to a perceived feeling of failure.

Achieving the extraordinary is not a linear process.

No great thing has been created suddenly.

Some things take time.

Listen to your vision and make something for the long haul. Because that’s how long it is going to take, guys.

The secret is to show up, do the work, and go home. 

Show up, do the work, and go home.
