Hey 👋

I’ve just got back from a long weekend in North Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿, and while there, to celebrate my 7-year anniversary, my wife and I visited the Copper Mines.

💡 Copper represents 7 years of marriage, so it seemed very fitting.

I remember the smelting process from my school days, but I did not remember the amount of work that goes into mining for Copper and then turning it into something usable.

The miners would chip away at the rock to create tunnels and shafts to access copper ore deposits.

Then they would fire up a furnace to separate the Copper from the rock, and after a 24-hour waiting period, they would sieve out the Copper and again place it in the furnace to melt.

During which time, they would get the moulds ready for the molten Copper. In the example we saw, it was for the making of an axe.

They would pour the Copper into the mould, and once it had hardened, they would separate the mould and begin shaping, buffing, and preparing the copper axe.

Do I still have your attention?

If I do, wonderful, you rock! 🤘

If I don’t, well, you won’t know, but you’re the reason I’m telling you about the copper axe-making process.

We live in a world where we have zero patience and huge expectations, and clearly, 4000 years ago, this was the opposite way around. In fact, I remember my parents having very little expectations and huge reserves of patience.

So the lesson from today’s email is this…

Have PATIENCE! 🤌

Just because you can’t see anything happening doesn’t mean things aren’t working. Have faith in the process!

Don’t get fooled by the shortcuts you see on social media.

Love the journey,

Enjoy the game,

And always remember this 👇

Hard work is the shortcut!

Chat next week,

Jon

P.S. I bought a copper thumb ring, and it keeps turning my thumb green, and it smells like I’ve been counting pennies.

Just thought you might want to know that.
