I WAS looking at my desk calendar and noticed a nice quote by the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh.
Gogh drew as a child but only started painting when he was in his late twenties.
The quote is: “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things done together.”
When it comes to learning skills in writing, producing music, painting or even mathematics, nobody becomes successful “on impulse”.
Those who master skills in those subjects (or areas) took the time to be consistent and committed to do the “small things” every day or every other day until they became so good that others thought their achievement was “on impulse”.
May you all learn.
I urge you to keep the little time you commit to mastering a skill a priority - be committed to it, from day to day, week to week and month to month.
At the end of the year, the hours and days you have spent on the “series of small things” could be “a great thing” and win you an award or prize.
