Standing in front of the quarries in Carrara, I imagine Michelangelo choosing stones worthy of his masterpieces. In my mind’s eye, I see him surveying these very mountains as he travelled around paying labourers here and scrutinising a rock wall there.
Our ancestors accomplished some amazing feats, without our modern transport systems. But of course, it goes without saying that Michelangelo did not mass produce his David! And he only painted one Sistine Chapel.
And what if that is the secret? Only do things once and give it your all to do your best? That’s what the 4 Toltec agreements teach us.
What about you? What is the project closest to your heart that would be worth you spending a month, a year, or even 25 years on?
