I like reading biographies and interviews where people talk about their carries and successes and struggles in achieving what they have and who they are. I came across below quote when reading and interview with Mary Jo Bang on 99 percent site.
everything, before it becomes easy, is a triumph. And some things never become easy—and in that case, simply continuing to do them is a triumph.
It’s good reminder that at he beginning everything is difficult and making even the slightest progress is success.
