    1. There are four types among those who sit before the sages: a sponge, a funnel, a strainer and a sieve.A sponge, soaks up everything; A funnel, takes in at one end and lets out at the other; A strainer, which lets out the wine and retains the lees; A sieve, which lets out the coarse meal and retains the choice flour.

    1. “If you could have done it on your own, you already would have done it.”

      Gotta be honest with yourself. If you haven't finished what needs to be finished, there's a reason for that.

      It could be you're no longer interested. If that's the case, wtf are you trying so hard for? Give it up. Don't waste your time doing something you don't wanna do.

      However, though, if it's something you're passionate about, and you're mad at yourself for having not finished it already, then there's passion in the tank. The work must be done because, if you don't, you'll die crying.

      So if you're still passionate about the project, and you're not getting the job done to completion, there's another reason for your faults...

      You're not gifted enough to perform whatever portion of the project you're struggling to complete.

      And that's fine! It's alright to suck! If people didn't suck at stuff, there'd be no reason to have so many different professions. Everyone would just leverage their god-like overall awesomeness, where there's nothing you can't do perfectly, and do everything yourself.

      But that's not the world we live in. Our world includes other people; people who live to deliver their unique solution, talents, advice, etc. to people like you.

      Life is best when there's harmony. Harmony is often found within; but, oftentimes, harmony can't be enjoyed without help from others.
