The work that’s done in anonymity.

Behind closed doors when no-one is watching.

The work that’s done that doesn’t get the plaudits.

It’s not ready yet, it’s not fit for public consumption.

The tinkering in the garage.

The noodling on the guitar.

The reading, the running, the prayers.

This is the work that matters.

No-one is telling you to do it and there are times when your mind is telling you to stop.

But you do it anyway.

Because you know that the work done in anonymity is the foundation of all of your future success.
