The Irish language is often remarked upon for its poetic turn of phrase and that is no more obvious in the sean fhocail - or 'old words'. Sean fhocail are well known sentences that some might see as cliché, but when each one of them is considered in more than just passing, the deeper wisdom and cultural insights can be glimpsed.
Tús Maith Leath Na Hoibre translates as "A Good Start is Half the Work".
Often in our lives we fall afoul of a difficult to perceive influence which we are exposed to all of the time in our modern world. We are constantly shown how "great" a thing is in its completed state and rarely the effort that went into getting it there. From the fashion and fitness industries to the food commercials, and more, we're are sold this idea of a perfect existence. The downside of this influence is the damage it can do to motivation. Some of us find ourselves caught unable to take the first step because all we are focused on is the last.
This phrase reminds me that done is better than perfect, and a good start can often have more of an effect on our progress than we realise.
