Earlier this evening, when I was having dinner with my husband – we watched a local talk show. It was at the end of the show – about 5 minutes max. Something at the end of the show captured my attention. The host threw a short illustration:
“If you take an elevator to the 30th floor and the electricity is down – you will certainly be thrown to the first floor in an instant. But if you climb to the 30th floor and you slip – you will only fall 1 floor below”.
The morale is the harder we climb high, the harder it is for us to be thrown back to square one. There’s no such thing as an instant success or a quick turn over. There is always something in the middle between ‘the start’ and ‘the end result’ called Process.
“When one has finished building one’s house, one suddenly realizes that in the process one has learned something that one really needed to know in the worst way – before one began”
