I never did anything by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident; they came by work. ~ Thomas Edison
A nice little quote by Edison to tell you to just get on with what you are doing.
Hardly any entrepreneur or inventor for that matter ever sat in the garden and came up with the big idea to change the world or earn millions of pounds. A few might have but hardly any have.
Getting things right, coming up with good ideas or inventions is about one thing: HARD WORK.
My grandma who would be over 100 years old now never said anything else: Volker, she would say, you going to be ok. You have the gift to get on with people and the stamina and attitude to work hard. And that is exactly what I do.
I get on with things and put a lot of hard work into it. That got me where I am.
No, I haven’t changed the world (yet), not earned a million (yet) and I haven’t invented anything or founded anything (yet). But I got to a place I am happy with: work, life, family – all-round.
Things just don’t come to those who wait, do they? Although a bit of patience would have helped me along the way 😉
Get on with it, work hard and make it happen. You got it in yourself.
