Teacher : I saw some of your paintings.
Student : I am really passionate on painting. How do you feel on them, Sir?
Teacher : Good..You paint well. But your passion alone won’t drive you.
Student : I am in damn love with painting. But yes, sometimes I feel bored.
Teacher : It’s not just enough to have a passion and skill.
Student : Sir..?
Teacher : It’s not just enough to wish for something or want something. You need to handle the boredom of repetition, the boredom of repeated process.
Student : Sir, how can I escape from that boredom?
Teacher : You cannot escape from that boredom. It is humane. You need to find your own way to work through boredom. There are no magic sticks to inspire you every time. You need to put in hours and time. You should not make yourself driven by priceless emotions when you have a great goal to achieve. You need to love that boredom of repetition and make yourself under continuous practice.
Student : Yes Sir, I understand, ‘It’s not enough to have a passion, need to have a work ethic too’. Anyone can work better when inspired, but the real performer is the one who performs the best even when no one is there to motivate him.
