Do the boring stuff.

Eating the meal is great but cleaning the dish is also great — Elon Musk

An interesting reality is that a few people who excel in their industries do so because they choose to perform the boring work rather than sit back and enjoy the pleasant parts.

To design a product, for instance, engineering, consumer research, consistent deliveries, user validation, and market outreach can all be quite boring. However, it is because of these factors that the venture has become so successful.

Many people wish to outsmart that entire evolution in order to produce very intriguing things, but that isn’t always the case. Great things are built on a foundation of horseshit. But that’s exactly what’s required.

Others will give random excuses like ‘I’ve got a creative block,’ ‘Not currently motivated,’ blah blah and get nothing done in eventuality.

You must be willing to put in the effort required for whatever you are doing, and you must be able to deliver quickly and without delay.
It can be tedious at times, but adding a block brings the entire house into view.
