How has your week been? I wonder, have you been busy… or slowly emerging from winter hibernation??
I’ve had a satisfyingly productive week. FINALLY, after Barry gave me a sewing machine almost four Christmases ago, I have it unpacked and set up, and have busy working on a few projects for Ava’s fourth birthday next month. It has been a little daunting, but also so much FUN, and I already feel slightly addicted.
Also, we spent sunday afternoon searching for Local Adventure Goodies (I’ll share some more details with you in a post later this week).
Today, I thought I’d share with you an inspiring video I came across over on The Bedlam of Beefy… a very beautiful blog which is the home of the ever-so-charming Bradford.
Hmmm… Beyond those people who identify as ‘creatives’ this video really spoke to me, and I thought it would apply to just about anyone who has dreams and goals and a direction they want to see their life heading in.
I read recently that to become an expert of a particular skill or knowledge base, you need to put 10,000 hours of work in. 10,000 hours! I often find myself disheartened when an idea I have for a project doesn’t materialise the way I had visualised before I began… and I love that this video is a reinforcement that if you persist and believe in your own abilities and just keep working at it, then eventually the dreams & goals and reality will align.
What do you think? Do you think persistence and hard work pay off in the end, or am I taking an idealistic view?
Wishing you a week full of lovely adventures.
