“Ambition must be made of sterner stuff”
Three things are involved in goal setting and achievement: realistic goals including timing; difficulties inherent in the goal itself; and difficulties inherent in yourself. So you want to be a cross- country runner after running only short races. You need to determine what exactly you want to do (win cross-country races); the difficulties inherent (long distances, hills, detours, poor roads, etc.); and the amount of effort and ‘grunting’ you are prepared to expend to getting there. This Sarcies admonition always referred to this last component – in almost everything worth its salt, your ambition must be built on stuff sterner than mere hope; on rugged preparation, and on much more than cursory forays, confidence, etc., etc. Great advice requiring a little thinking…..
