I was working on a website to change its font files yesterday. I had done everything correctly to the best of my knowledge. However, it did not seem to work – no matter how many times I looked over my pull request to see if everything was in order. I decided to call it a day and check back the following day.
This seems like an oversimplification of the lesson that we need to be patient, but I believe it serves a purpose. Sometimes, we worry too much when we have something that troubles us. So much so that we lose the happiness of the present moment. When we decide to sleep on an issue or decision, sometimes the problem will resolve itself.
For some of the problems we face at work or in life, the solution is to give it some time, be patient and persevere.
Let me end with Alibaba founder Jack Ma’s quote on this:
Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.
Okay, that’s enough motivation for a Wednesday
