According to writer, Jon Gordon,

“Anything worthwhile takes time to build. 

We all want success now, but that’s not how success works.”

A great forest takes decades to grow.

A great cathedral takes decades to construct.

A great career takes years to build.

A great artist takes years to develop their craft.

Raising a family is a job that never seems to end and requires constant growth and flexibility.

I don’t know what your goals are.

But make them big enough that they will take years to achieve.

Years of struggle, hard work, mistakes, growth.

It’s a far better alternative to years of regret, missed opportunities and dissatisfaction.

Because in a world that demands instant gratification, it’s good to remember that anything worthwhile takes time.
