Thank you for this honest article. it strikes the cord at so many level for me.
the dream vs the real work , I’m an expert in that matter. I always try to found a way to keep dreaming while postponing the hard job. ( usually I’m successful)
I loved the 40% rule, i didn’t know about that but I experienced in so many level, every time I tried to do something i put some limits and like the example you gave I felt short even for the goal I set and that because when I start to do the real work, I fell overwhelmed and defeated and I dont push past that.
