Persistence (Power pole at Diemerpark)

 When being inspired, thoughts slowly start forming in mind. While some of them merge, others are quickly discarded. Though at this point, everything is still open, over time, a few become real convincing options that seem worth being put into practice.

Full of motivation, it is easy to plunge into an adventure quickly. But a rapid, rough landing frequently follows a too fast run-up. In many cases, its impact is too strong, and as a result, frustration rises. Regularly, this leads to the discarding of sparkling ideas.

If counting on persistence rather than pace, it is likely to gain more. There is more time to make mistakes, learn and develop. Yet, being tenacious appears harder than achieving the actual goal itself in many cases because too often, we stand in our own way.

I took this photo shortly after moving to Amsterdam in winter 2021. You can see a power pole at Diemerpark. The park is on a little island in the east of the city. Next to many different plants and a lot of wild rabbits, you can also see many power poles that guide to the close-by power plant.
