Why you need to keep swinging…

14 Mar

(The most popular of my 7 sentence blogs revisited)

A Stone Cutter swings away at a rock pounding it 100 times without so much as a crack appearing in it. On his 101st blow the rock shatters… yet he knows it was not the 101′st blow that broke that rock but the 100 seemingly pointless, worthless blows that went before it.

A friend sent me this analogy to encourage me not to give up in my film-making endeavors… but it not only applies to stone cutting or film making; you can use it to metaphor just about anything you want to achieve in life. Einstein said “I’m no more intelligent that the average man I just stay with problems for longer.”

In our world persistence is an undervalued commodity.

Who knows what blow will break that rock or which kind act or word will break open a hardened heart. The important thing is not to stop, to never give up and to keep on hammering.
