Sometimes you’ve just gotta do hard stuff.

Just look it right in the eye and plow through it.

Sometimes the only way forward is to continue digging ditches and piling inches of dirt.

Sometimes time and repeated effort is the only remedy.

There’s no telling how long until things start moving on their own momentum. But there’s no option but to keep making momentum bit by bit for as long as it takes.

Sometimes there’s no escape from the pain.

Sometimes you gotta swallow the medicine.

The only thing worse is denial and delay.

That’s what I’ve been working through both in business and my life in general. And I just keep putting one foot in front of the other. I can’t go back in time, but I can keep moving forward through time until time compounds effort into outcome, persistence into clarity, work into results.

No silver bullets or magic pills. As Morgan Freeman might narrate, just time and pressure.
