“Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise” — Frank Ocean

I had been going to the same exact Sweetgreen location for nearly three months now and this was the first time I ever noticed that quote up there.

A masterpiece doesn’t happen overnight.

Many of us don’t see the amount of time and effort that is put behind a successful piece of work or even behind successful people that make it happen.

It’s a marathon not a sprint.

We must treat writing (and life) much like a marathon. The art of marathon training is a diligent process — It takes time, patience, and determination to reach a clear end goal.

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” — Theodore Roosevelt
