37/365 – The Sweat You Don’t See.
Behind every idea, there’s definitely an effort of some kind. Ideas don’t come by themselves and they don’t just happen.
My yoga teacher was joking today about how much I sweat while just holding a position without even moving: it is hard and some positions are even harder and I was there struggling to hold it I thought about its meaning.
Where is the sweat we don’t see?
There’s so much that isn’t visible in what we do and especially behind what we create: creativity is the result of a mix of so many conditions being ready at the same right time that the sweat that’s visible is only a small part of the whole effort.
Don’t assume something was easy just because it looks like it: just wait to see the sweat to realize that even without moving you were actually doing a lot.
