Today’s minimotivator #48-2010: Keep hammering

Jacob A. Riis said, “Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”

How many times do people stop at the hammering at 100? I think a lot and yet like the stone cutter if they kept hammering they would crack whatever they were working on.

Don’t stop at 100. All the energy you have built in the those first 100 will make the next 100 easier and more powerful. You will crack the rock.
