This afternoon I spent 4 hours doing tedious, time-consuming, boring work. It had to be done. I could not delegate it. It will form part of a package that will be outstanding and beautiful however. There are times in our work when we have to “clean the latrines”. Today was my day. I took a nap, started at 2 pm, and promised myself that I would keep working at it until it was done or 6 pm. And it is done. Are you willing to spend the required time doing drudge work? Don’t let all your time — or even a lot of it — slip in that direction. But a helpful saying from the famous athlete Jerry Rice might help: “Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.” Finish the tedious work, if it helps to make a beautiful product.
