If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking. ~Buddhist Saying
It may take a while, but step by step, you get closer to your goal. Don’t give up. Don’t be discouraged. Just keep moving forward.
While I was going to university, I got married, had babies, and moved a dozen times. These were not activities that promoted speedy academic progress! It took me 8 years to get my first degree, step by step, course by course. Eventually the end arrives, if you keep moving toward your goal.
When I was writing Grace Awakening, I wrote 5 pages a day, 25 pages a week, for 6 months. 23 weeks later, there was a novel on my computer. Some people write 8 hours a day and do 20 or 30 pages a day. They speed through a novel in a month. My pace may seem like I’m a tortoise in comparison, but I got there. If I had gotten down on myself for not being a speedy hare, I might not have finished at all.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Keep your eyes on the prize.
