The Week of February 9, 2017
There is no such thing as instant success.  What may look effortless may actually take hours, even years, to achieve.  For example, Olympic athletes will train from the time they are small children until that moment of competition. They will train four, eight, twelve hours a day to become elite performers.

Job Burnout

I have been working in the same law office for ten years and have tried so hard to grow with the firm.  Lately, I have been too busy to figure out how to do all of this work and I just do it.  Every day is filled with surprises which bring more work and the days just drag on longer.
