Get to work!

When you take it upon yourself to study something without any externally imposed pressure, it can be challenging to stay on track. Sometimes I find it difficult to keep up with farm readings because I’m such a hands-on person, and I don’t have any land to apply my new knowledge to. But it’s important to just keep packing that knowledge into your head for the day when you do get put up to the test, if you should be so lucky. Here’s why:

If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavourable. Favourable conditions never come… We must do the best we can. -C.S. Lewis
