Some Things Take Time

by | Jun 6, 2013 | At Checkerboard, Integrated Marketing | 0 comments

There is a blog post that I ran across by David Meerman Scott that really resonated with me. Essentially, he believes that doing anything of value will take time and won’t always be easy. As David points out, this can apply to a number of things – looking for a job, starting a business, or learning to paint. For me, on a personal level, it’s getting better at drawing. I’ve done it off and on my whole life, but I recently decided that I wanted to get much better. And there really is no secret. You just have to put in the time. And to get a little Zen, the journey is the reward (or it should be at least).

It brings to mind a handful of others who share similar sentiments. Recently, Louis C.K. touched on this idea of patience when talking about his comedy career. And Steven Pressfield is an author who has a real blue collar, roll up your sleeves attitude towards creating that is a great motivator when you are feeling the resistance to create.

What are your thoughts on doing and creating things of value? Are these principles you’ve applied to your own life, work, or business?
