Have I got the X-Factor? No.

The new X-Factor song (which will hopefully be beaten to the Christmas number one slot by the Rage against the Machine campaign) is called "The Climb".

Not a bad tune, but I disagree with the lyrics.  To summarise, it essentially states that it is not your achievements that should be celebrated but rather the process of attempting to achieve them.  It doesn't matter what the end result is.


This week I want to "achieve" writing a 5000 word assignment from start to finish in 5 days.  The "climb" will be a tedious, draining, exhausting process and the only motivation that keeps me going is the reward of finishing it.

Killing in the name of.....work.
