effort
Tuesday, October 02 2007 @ 05:45 AM CDT

what is effort. is accomplishing = effort, or is that just accomplishment. is effort pain? is effort struggle? if effort necessary? can someone accomplish an act without pain, struggle and necessity? creative accomplishment seems to happen best sometimes without effort. sometimes i think the establishment has constructed an effort society whereby we must all struggle to survive. or did God do that? just to make it interesting. is there a fine line here?

Perfection is just down the road. Way down the road...

Other factors come into play for example: tenacity, talent and focus - effort on its own can be fairly meaningless, intelligent effort is ultimately far more productive. Having the ideas can be the easy part, realising them is often the challenge. Edison's line "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration" is pretty much on the money as far as I'm concerned.

With regard to there being an 'effort society' perhaps this drifts into the survival of the fittest debate...

All life forms struggle to survive. Pretty hard to blame that on "society."
