It never gets easier, you just go faster.

This is a well known quote by Greg LeMond, the first American to win the Tour de France in 1986. But that’s just one of his many, many accomplishments. If you follow cycling at all, you might have noticed this quote being adopted by pretty much the entire cycling community as a mantra.

This statement applies to all aspects of life where perseverance is key, not just cycling. Especially if you’re trying to build something, there are no lasting “easy” moments. You get a win here and there, but the moment one thing is functioning right, ten other things need fixing. And the more things you fix, the faster you grow.
But, indeed, things never get easier.
