The thing is, if you love what you do, you can accomplish some things by just working whenever you feel like it. The advantage to this is life is much more relaxed. The downside is that things are going to move at a much slower pace.
But bring focus and discipline to what you are working on and the timeline speeds up considerably. Improvements come at a faster rate – mastery takes time. There aren’t any shortcuts in life.
Grinding it out is the best approach. Focus on what you want to do, and don’t be afraid to suck.
Just keep making cool shit.
At the end of the day that’s reward enough.
