It’s hard work, not hard

‘Hard work’ and ‘hard’ are different.

When we say something is ‘hard’, we mean it’s unlikely.

Bowling ten strikes in a row is ‘hard’.

Building a profitable business may not be ‘hard’ though.

It may just be ‘hard work’.

Just like how redecorating a house is ‘hard work’.

But if you take it (the business or the redecoration) one step at a time, allow it the time it needs to make it as you (and those it serves) want it, there’s a good chance it’ll come out right in the end.

If you’re doing something that’s ‘hard’, practice.

If you’re doing something that’s ‘hard work’, keep going.
