In the midst of fatigue, the hardest part of a task is finishing the last ten to twenty percent. It is at this point in most projects that I am want to give up. In truth, I give up often at this point. I’m tired, and the rewards no longer seem worth the effort.
What I don’t think about usually, when at this point are two things. First, the rewards that initially prompted me to start, but also the reward of finishing. I think such an accomplishment is underrated in my mind.
I am going to finish this project. Sure, it might sound corny to think that this is what Frodo felt as he carried the ring, but we all have our personal battles to face, and who cares if mine is somewhat on a smaller scale. The character is the same. The strength of will to move mountains is built by moving small stones.
