Nothing hard is ever easy. This is a valuable lesson learned under the tutelage of world-class surgeon Dr. Valerie Rusch. The takeaway from this valuable lesson is that we must work to overcome the misconception that with enough work, practice, studying, etc. hard things will eventually become easy. That is not always the case. Sometimes, even with limitless time studying or training, a hard task will always be hard, but the preparation done to get through it will make the task bearable.
Hard work, preparation, and practice aren’t about making things easy, it’s about being prepared for the difficulty of the task at hand.
