Recall how you first learnt to ride a bicycle or play a musical instrument or play a sport. The first hour is probably spent picking up the bicycle or making some shrieking sound or picking up a running ball. The next 10 hours would seem a bit better. By the next 100, 1000 or 10,000 hours, you would have mastered it and perfected it.

In short, nil sine labore which means nothing without labour.
