There is always time to learn something new. The sense of urgency to complete a work is in fact a limitation you place on yourself. The haste that you embed in your life can only hurt you. Rushing makes you stumble.
Opportunities will come again, always. That is an important fact to understand, because then you can be more deliberate. You aren’t subject to the first spark of fear that life is over. Whether you take advantage of this time or the next, you can do better than you thought possible.
You are never stuck if you accept that you aren’t.
