Getting to the other end

The writer, Frank Norris, once quipped – I don’t like writing, but I like having written.

The most meaningful pursuits are satisfying only in retrospect. They are usually scary, uncomfortable and unsettling in prospect.

I don’t like going for a run, but I like the feeling of having run.

I don’t like swimming across a lake, but once I do, I am filled with a sense of accomplishment.

I don’t like staring a difficult project, but once I am done, I am grateful for what it has taught me.

What starts off as hardship gradually evolves into an achievement. The key is to be done and get to the other end.
