It is easy to start anything. Starting to learn a new language takes a few minutes. Starting to learn a new sport takes not more than a few hours.
It’s the finishing that’s difficult. Staying interested when the excitement of trying something new has waned. To achieve mastery in anything, be it languages, sports or professional skills, we’re required to do much more than dabbling. The real skills and experience only come after putting in a lot of time. There are no shortcuts.
Starting something new in itself isn’t that useful. Keeping at it is where the real benefits lie. So let’s start less and keep up more.
