The Moon Was Hard

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard” — John F. Kennedy.

Your daily inspiration. The older I get, the more I realize the truth in those words. The things that are hard are special at least partially (mainly?) because of the difficulty in obtaining them.

For me, writing is hard. I write a lot, so you may not think it’s hard for me. But it is. Creating something out of nothing is hard.

Learning an instrument is hard. Flying airplanes is hard. Learning another language is hard. Having a large family is hard.

All those things are good, too. They’re worthwhile pursuits, because they’re hard.

Go and do something hard today.
