Richie Norton shared this in his BYUMS speech, and I think it’s a wit to take with me for all time.
You have a big picture goal, and you need every little thing to work your way up there. Don’t ever be distracted. Don’t ever be sad that it’s been taking too long. Play a long game. Be patient. It’s gonna be okay.
Patient doesn’t mean you sit and wait. Patient is, you’re like, okay this takes longer than normal. But you’re still working very hard, really hard, like a duck. It’s calm on the water, but going crazy of legs underneath. #belikeaduck
