#6: Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3

this will be the hardest thing you have ever done in your life. perhaps it will take two full years of concentration to be confident enough to scale such heights. or two decades of your life. maybe even two centuries. can humans live to be beyond a hundred? what if you truthfully require two hundred years to do this, and yet to be deterred right from the start because it is theoretically impossible to do it given that no one lives up to be more than two centuries old anyway? but how can you tell if you need two years or two decades or two minutes or two hours – no, surely you cannot tell. but in essence, it is an everest to climb from the viewpoint of time. but you will have to do it or else you will not be able to live with the fact that you never tried. there lies practicality too – should you just stick to your mundane existence and live the life others expect you to, or try and take on greatness?

so gently, you pick up your courage and do it. you press your fingers into the fresh earth, and start digging.
