Dedication

“Work is finding yourself alone at the track when the weather kept everyone else indoors.  Work is pushing through the pain and crappy first drafts and prototypes.  It is ignoring whatever plaudits others are getting, and more importantly, ignoring whatever plaudits you may be getting.  Because there is work to be done.  Work doesn’t want to be good.  It is made so, despite the headwind.” ~ Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy

“One of the most common mistakes and one of the costliest, is thinking that success is due to some genius, some magic something or other which we do not possess.  Success is generally due to holding on and failure to let go.  You decide to learn a language, study music, take a course in reading, train yourself physically.  Will it be a success or failure?  It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word ‘decide’ contains.  The decision that nothing will overrule, the grip that nothing can detach will bring success.” ~ Maltbie D. Babcock, Clergyman and Author

“Do things with your whole heart, with as much intensity as you are capable of. Anything done halfheartedly never brings joy to life. It only brings misery, anxiety, torture, and tension, because whenever you do anything halfheartedly you are dividing yourself into two parts, and that is one of the greatest calamities that has happened to human beings – they are all split.” ~ Osho, The Book of Understanding
