If the road to success is always under construction then I should always leave my house early to get "there" on time.
I like this image. That life is a road. When you need to go somewhere you make plans and try to estimate the time it will take to get there. What happens when you realize that there are road works? Well, you give yourself more time and adapt.
I think that we should all give up the idea that life is perfect and we should start enjoying our imperfect lives and English.
