I went to watch a Bharatnatyam dance show yesterday. It was a 1st time for me. What bewildered me was the grit of performers: they have been practicing for over 15 years. They have been a software engineer in their day jobs.

How many of us continue doing something we like for 15 years? Don’t we easily give up, get depressed and move on?

My learnings:

  • There are no shortcuts to success.
  • Pefection happens over practice with time.
  • Persistence and perseverance trumps rest.
