Lesson 33 from The Hard Knocks School of Life

Persistence is more important in the scheme of life than inspiration or brilliance.
This is one of the hardest lessons of life to learn. It therefore bears much repetition. In simple parlance practice (persistence) makes perfect. Thus the writer or artist who works at his craft every day is better than the brilliant genius who waits for inspiration to hit.

This also applies to other areas. The man who has many skills but who does not go out every day to find a job (or refuses to take a job) will not usually be as successful as the man who works every day.
