If you are putting in the hard work and possibly wondering how everything will pan out, here is one quote that will help you put things into perspective. Steve Job once said
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Building anything meaningful in life requires time and effort. Some times you don’t have all the answers or have a clear blueprint on how to get there. And even when you have a plan, life happens. That said, you have to keep forging forward in the face of uncertainty. Where the tyre hits the road is in the daily sometimes mundane actions. It can to keep chipping away and stay consistent especially when the ultimate goal seems far away.
I look back at my life and see plenty of deliberate actions and serendipitous moments that have led to where I am now. I might have beaten myself up in the past for feeling like I was wasting time. Now I know that no experience in life ever wasted. Every experience is like a piece of lego which comes together to build this masterpiece that is you. So wherever you are in life, keep forging forward. Trust that the dots will connect as you put one foot in front of the other.
