Rome wasn’t built in a day, as they say.
It started as we all must: pretty poor. Just a cluster of farmer’s huts dotted across the hillside.
It’s not like anyone can just pick up a guitar and start playing it. Or read. Or walk.
Even simple things that we assume we can all do – like a star jump – don’t come naturally to the human body. We just forget how much effort we spent learning them. And often, how much help we had getting there.
There is nothing in this world worth doing that doesn’t take some practice. Nothing in this world worth having that won’t cost us some time in one way or another.
The best chance we can give ourselves is to start poorly and keep on plugging away until we fail better.
Or at least until we’re finished for the day.
