"Don't get pizza from there," my friend warned me last weekend in New York City. "If you want pizza waiting for you when you walk up and you want it to only cost 99 cents a slice, then it won't be very good."
Pizza is like many other things in life: if you want it to be great, it's going to take time.
Art, meaningful relationships, fulfilling careers - these all take time to develop. Thankfully, each is always worth the investment you make.
