We do not acquire compelling and valuable skills gracefully but awkwardly.

Not smoothly, but roughly.
Not quickly, but eventually.
Not comfortably, but painfully.
Not consistently, but unevenly.

Less through planning. More through doing.
Less through clarity. More through uncertainty.
Less through accuracy. More through mistakes.
Less through revelation. More through reflection.

Every polished skill is born from a coarse past.

Brick by brick. Do the work.
