Patience is a virtue (#116)

Day highlights:

  • I was able to spend some time with JB.
  • First practice at the new club.
  • Thought exercise on what I want to achieve this year.

Thought of the day:

Today, I was reminded that everything good will take time.

I've always seen myself as an impatient person especially when it comes to the things I really want / like.

Coming into the new club, I had the expectations that everything was going to be smooth and I'll be able to practice freely.

I could not be more wrong.

It left me feeling frustrated in the middle of practice and I almost felt like going home back home to re-evaluate if this is the right path for what I want.

After the practice though, I was reminded by Mr. FS that most things take time.

I can't expect everything to be perfect from the get-go especially when I'm building something from scratch.

It had me think about how similar it would be to starting a new business venture (which in some sense, this kinda is).

A lot of my previous failures to launch something successfully came from my eagerness to want perfection from the beginning.

Things would not be smooth and wouldn't be perfect and at the first sign of a roadblock in my "perfect" predefined roadmap, I'd get discouraged and stop my progress.

Maybe God is trying to teach me a lesson on patience through this new club.

Maybe if I stick through this and build something great, I can take all my lessons learned and apply it to my next venture.

I guess it's a decision I need to make pretty soon.

Good night.
