Continuing to Work
This is going to be a quick post this week because I am in the midst of the final push to get this thesis done. I am working long hours and really just ready to be done. However, it isn’t done yet. I still have a lot to do. My final chapter is getting close to the end, but the moment I finish, I will start editing and adding words to the project. I have a lot work to do.
Right now I am dealing with a few obscure German philosophers who haven’t been translated into English and are arguing with other obscure German philosophers over one minor point about which they disagree. It hurts it my head. Honestly, I just want to quit right now. I know I am close to finishing, but I want to be done right now. There is a part of me that just want to move on.
Yet, there is something about just pushing through the hard times. Often life and work can be overwhelming, and we just want to quit. It is in those hard moment, the ones where it is going to take everything in you to keep going, that you see the most growth. We can see this in physical exercise. Doing things which are comfortable, doesn’t produce results. We need to be uncomfortable. We need to be stretched. So, right now I am going to get back to it. I am going to finish this chapter, no matter how much I want to quit. I am going to move on and start editing. It will be painful, but it will be worth it.
