The work


The work is everything. Your ability to do the work is your everything.

The work is not always fun.

It’s not always rewarding.

It may not take you as long as you think it should, to get the work done.


The work is everything. The series of articles I did on 10 000 hours is proof to that. The books written by Malcolm Gladwell are testament and statement to that. The writings of Leo Tabauta are a guide to getting the work done faster. More effectively.

The most successful people I know, they love the work. The love the process of work and the journey the work takes them on.

The video shows sometimes you can do the same thing and get different results, depending on the work you did in the middle. The results can vary hugely depending on the work you have done.

The work takes time. Create the time. Make the journey process available to yourself. Immerse yourself. Do the work. Results will follow.
