An anecdote about working hard

Two days ago, I went for a little drive up the F3 freeway (a portion, not all of it) and back again. Whenever I want to test a car out, or try something new, I always drive the same route up and back. The distance is about 30km each way.

On the way back, I stopped at a nice pie shop (Pie in the Sky) on the side of the highway. As I was about to get out of my car (an Audi A1), a gentleman in an Audi R8 parks up in front of me. Being somewhat of a car enthusiast, I complemented him on his car.

Me: Nice car.
R8: Thank you. Nice car too.
Me: Thank you!
R8: You know, one day your car could become like mine.
Me: That’s the dream, one day…

You will notice that my car is the blue one behind.

I thought it was cool how Audi’s entry level car and its top-of-the-line were next to each other; a way of showing its wide reach and appeal.

For me though, it is a story which will encourage me to work hard towards what I want to achieve. I can’t wait until the day I have a spare ~$400,000 to splash on a fast car!
