Quality over quantity. What a thing to strive for! And how sexy is that, good Lord! It’s probably the ideal of the most ideals.

But there’s a catch. It’s an ideal, and how often does that happen? By definition, very rarely, at least for starters and non-starters.

By waiting out on something desirable happening, you lose time. And time is arguably the only thing that can be lost in the true sense of the word. You might never get a chance to make up for it later.

Mostly it’s the quantity that leads to quality. Repetition and practice in less than ideal circumstances actually give you that eye for the thing. In other words, it helps you advance. Therefore, the power of making use of what you have is not to be underestimated.
