"For everything worthwhile in life, no matter what it is, you're going to have to do some things along the way that you really don't want to do."
I do think this is true for any job you are in. There will be a period of time to build an investment, start at the bottom of the totem pole. Not that the bottom or beginning is always filled with bad things.
Sigh. This is what I remind myself through finals, exercise routines, and....revisions!
Aubrie left an insightful comment the other day about revisions being akin to crunches: annoying but so beneficial!
It was such a great analogy. While some people become addicted to exercise because of these tiny little molecules named endorphins and others love the revising process, I never fell into one (or either) of those lucky camps.
So, I split it up, chapter by chapter. Give myself a break after each one. Throw in some appreciation, ask for external feedback. Repeat. Know that there is always room for improvement and hope that I take advantage of that.
And maybe that's all quite analogous to life :)
