“Good things, in life, take a long time”

“(I’ve Been) Searchin’ So Long” by Chicago

The ability to remain patient while working on a project is a virtue. Not everyone is in as much of a rush as the entrepreneur is to complete the venture. 

Slow as you go

“Give it some time” is a sentiment that balances the “do something.” Letting it grow at a manageable pace allows evaluation and adjustment. The learning during this period cannot be underestimated.

Don’t get frustrated

As it’s been noted many times, good things take a long time. Frustrating, sure, but learning is not a rush job. Not only does it taste sweeter when the goal is achieved, but the knowledge that it’s not a cake walk is also appreciated.

Taking the requisite steps

Most of the time it’s two steps forward and one step back. Remember to enjoy going forward but also to learn from the steps back.

Unfortunately, this is not realized until accomplishments are made. There can be so many necessary tasks that cannot be controlled. The capacity to accept circumstances as presented, without getting bent out of shape, will bode well in the long run.

It’s easy to say in hindsight but do enjoy the ride. It may be a long one.
