Valuable Work


The thing about doing valuable work is that in the beginning it doesn’t look valuable. Often it doesn’t really look like anything. It may be rough, unpolished, foggy, messy, broken, small, undefined, hard to categorize, sloppy and maybe even downright bizarre. But the thing about value is that value isn’t immediate. Value is often built over time.

It takes time to polish. It takes time to organize. It takes time to fix, to clean up, to clarify, to define, to categorize and normalize.

Give yourself and your ideas time. Be patient. The work may be slow but it may be the most valuable thing you do.
