According to an ancient Greek myth, Sisyphus keeps pushing a boulder up a steep hill only to lose control of it just before he reaches the top, watching in dismay as it tumbles to the bottom. After each failure, he lumbers back down where he started and starts rolling it up again – and fails again. The myth says he’ll do this futile action for all eternity. There’s an important difference between your story and his. You’ve tried and tried to complete a certain uphill task, but you won’t be forever frustrated. A breakthrough will come soon, and success is finally yours. Will it be due to gutsy determination, neurotic compulsion or both?
