Work long enough and who knows – one day you might end up with something.
I mean, the key might just be waiting around until everyone else has given up.
If you are stuck, try the gradual process of incremental investments over time.
Using a system instead of a goal can change your approach to it all.
Sometimes, when we see a creative person succeed, we dismiss his breakthrough as luck or the result of pure talent, but neither explanation is accurate. What often allows great work to get the attention it deserves is not a matter of only talent or luck but a matter of the will. Can you stick around long enough to see your work succeed? Do you have enough grit to take a few critical hits and keep going? Or will you get discouraged at the first sign of failure?
