The Journey

“Those who can do, those who can’t teach.”George Bernard Shaw

The so-called expert loses all credibility the moment he decides to ignore this profound truth: he doesn’t really know what he did to achieve his success.

Not the opening you were expecting?

Life has the quality of being random, which we hate – that is why most people are superstitious. There are events that we cannot control, predict, or even influence.

That being said, if you choose not to read this book, let me give you one piece of advice that holds true: perseverance.

Is that all, you may ask. Yes, it is.

In my five years of daily blogging I discovered that even though one has no strategy, no knowledge, no relations, but works and works and works, one can usually get ahead of those who contemplate the perfect strategy over and over again.

Don’t think, just do is a principle that holds true in all areas of life.

And I’ll offer the following example: the first draft of any piece of fiction is awful.

The purpose, thus, is not to write a brilliant first draft, but to simply get it done with. Then you can edit.

The same principle goes for almost anything in life. It is important to get started, to develop a habit, then you can develop a strategy.

The Journey is a no-bullshit take on what’s supposed to work for those who are willing to persevere, while the previous statement makes it clear that they could do well enough without employing(or even reading) the principles found in this book.
