It Takes Work

Doing the hard thing is never easy.

It’s easier to do the hard thing when it’s sunny out, when the stars are aligned, when everything else seems to be going your way.

It’s not so easy when you’re stuck in the mud, when you can’t see a happy ending, when you’re not sure that this is going to work.

But that’s why you do the hard thing. Because it is hard. Because it requires work. Because you might fail. Because, as cliche as it sounds, if it were easy, everyone would do it.

I don’t race my bike. So there’s no need to go train on a Friday afternoon in February when it’s 30 degrees out and raining. But I did the hard thing, if only to remind myself that doing the hard thing is.
