How often did I give up on something because it would take too long to learn, or to be good at? Let's just say, I don't know how to play the piano, tap dance, speak German, nor have I written a novel.
There, you heard it.
There's more, but I don't want to bore with all the things I wanted to accomplish, but didn't. And I'm sure you have your list as well.
The time it takes to be good at something, really good at something often takes longer than we thought at first. I thought I could be a professional blogger in six months. It only took two an a half years on top of that. If I knew it would take three years, then it probably would have never happened. However, if I never tried, three years would have passed anyway.
If your dreams will take a long time to accomplish, don't be disheartened, the good dreams always take a long time to accomplish. Since time passes anyway, what the heck, let's do it!
