Do the hard stuff

Do the hard stuff, because it is the fulfilling stuff. Do the hard stuff, because it brings out your best.

Yes, it’s a lot of work and a lot of trouble, frustrating and inconvenient. So spend a few minutes complaining about it if that will make you feel better.

Then, get over your reluctance, get past your resistance, and get to work on getting it done. Ramp up your determination, make the commitment, and dive in.

Soon you’ll be feeling how good it feels when you’re creating value that never existed before. Soon you’ll find yourself being carried along by the momentum of achievement.

Don’t merely embrace the challenges. Go out and look for the most meaningful and valuable ones.

Choose to do the hard stuff, finding delight in the efforts you’re able to make. And you’ll enjoy the richest, longest-lasting, most fulfilling rewards.

— Ralph Marston
