“Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them–every day begin the task anew.”

~Saint Francis de Sales

It is extraordinarily rare for projects to go the way we hope and expect them to transpire.  Usually anything worth attempting requires many small, if not large, failures along the way to ultimate gain a successful outcome.  In fact, “success” will likely be being defined in a wholly different manner than you originally envisioned.  It is for these reasons that we must be patient with ourselves, recognizing our failures and imperfect efforts, and celebrating them for the lessons they provide.
