Work: Being patient to see results

Sometimes it seems that when we work hard at something, we don’t always see the progress we’ve made right away.

And sometimes it is frustrating.

When we’ve worked hard at something, we want to see the results immediately, but that is not always what happens. For example, I have an aquarium. When I clean it and stir up the gravel, the water becomes dirty and the aquarium looks worse than it did before I started cleaning it. I can’t see the results immediately, I have to be patient and wait. After a while, the water starts to clear and then I can see improvements that have been made.

When we work hard at something—whether it is in school, sports, music lessons, or something else—sometimes we don’t see the progress right away, but if we are patient we eventually will.
