Enthusiasm is common, endurance is rare
Enthusiasm is common, endurance is rare.
How many times have you had an idea, gotten fired up and started a project only to find that a month or two down the line it hasn't gained the following you hoped for or that you aren't able to give the time and attention to it that you had in the beginning?
This is what will set you apart from everyone else.
Its the ability to keep on working, even when you don't really feel like it. When the kids are on school holidays, your other work is kicking your arse and your partner wants more of your time.
I'm not suggesting of course that you have to abandon your life in favour of your project but there will be sacrifices along the way. Look for balance, keep that dream alive and remember why you started.
It will all be worth it when your life is your own and you can say 'I created that'
