When you love the drudgery of it..

” a calling requires certain preconditions. It requires more than desires; it requires talent. Not everyone can be, simply by desiring it, an opera singer; or professional athlete, or leader of a large enterprise. For a calling to be right, it must fit our abilities. Another precondition is love – not just love of the final product but, as the essayist Logan Pearsall Smith once put it, “The test of a vocation is love of drudgery it involves.” Long hours, frustrations, small steps forward, struggles; unless these too are welcomed with a certain joy, the claim to being called has a hollow ring.”
