Stop bragging about how fun it is when your house is on fire. Make a plan, stick to it, communicate, mentor, and train. Working like that is relaxing, enjoyable, and (most importantly) means building totally badass things on schedule that work as they are intended. You know… engineering.
The circumstances won’t change. You are always, always going to face forces that can bring you to your knees. No matter how well set up you are, how early you came in, how tight and awesome your mis en place is, there will be days, forces, events that just conspire to fuck you and the struggle to stay up — to not sink down into the blackest, meanest hole — to stay psychologically up and commited to the fight, is the hardest, by far, part of the day. - Gabrielle Hamilton
