This is written on a sticky note on my desk.

I have no idea who wrote it but everyday I read it because it’s true and it reminds me to just sit down and do the work in front of me.

Let’s be honest, most of us want the reward without the risk. The shine without the grind. But you can’t reach your ultimate destination without a journey. You have to invest your time and energy into where you’re going.

When you’re trying to figure out what your purpose in life is, instead of asking yourself what you’re passionate about, ask yourself this question: “What is worth suffering for?” This question will give you the clarity for what is ultimately worth fighting for.
