Forming a recipe in one’s mind is what everyone does. It’s too easy to think that you can or will make money, have a big house, and be the best in your craft.

But the real test starts when you are working, sweating, and shivering. When you are in the tunnel, you do not see the light on the other side.

Stop making too many plans because, in the end, you can’t estimate everything by sitting on your couch all day. There will be unknowns. You will…
