“When you’re trying to figure stuff out, it’s easy to get distracted by the various routes and that will cripple you. What’s way more important is to choose what you are going to do and stick with it long enough until you get traction. Unfortunately, that length of time is often longer than most people’s patience levels.” Brice Gump
