Attending a milestone event like high school graduation frames a person’s achievements in a very specific way. It’s easy to only see the success – awards, trophies, or diplomas – and not give a thought to the effort behind the accomplishment.
Even though we know success never just happens.
That’s why I like this pair of videos so much. In the first one (1:29), you see Flippycat set up 60,000 dominoes in 8 days. Then, in the second one (1:36) you see the mistakes made in building it.
And the second one.
A nice reminder not to stop until our masterpiece is finished, don’t you think?
