Everyone has to start somewhere

This is the first note I’m writing on this website. Quite fitting, as the subject is “everyone has to start somewhere”.

When we look up to our role models, to Olympic athletes, to seemingly tireless overachievers, and to our more senior peers who seem to have it easier than we do, remember that they, too, had to start somewhere.

Related to starting points is the idea that it’ll get easier as time goes by, but this is not always true: cyclist Greg LeMond famously said “it never gets easier, you just go faster”.

Notes mentioning this note

"It never gets easier, you just go faster"
This quote can be attributed to cyclist Greg LeMond, the first American to win the Tour de France.
Life is a giant playground
As we become adults and specialize in a given domain, we gain knowledge that inherently becomes tied to our egos...
There are many ways to achieve something
We should not try to find the perfect solution: we’ll only find ourselves wasting our time.
