The ritual union of the lone man and his quest to see his dreams come to life
Conviction is a powerful thing. It’s motivating, it’s liberating, it pushes us forward when we fall and it inspires us to act when no one is looking.
I think a lot of times we over think this concept, in the sense that, internally we feel a need to be motivated by a grand idea or something we’re truly passionate about. I think in this mindset we lose valuable time not acting on things that can help move us forward, instead, we spend too much time waiting to hit a home run rather than steadily working towards our goals.

For 53 years, Justo Gallego, the lone man, this hasn’t been the case. He has been building a cathedral by hand on the outskirts of Madrid almost entirely by himself. Gallego has no formal architecture or construction training, but that hasn’t stopped him from toiling on this herculean task. At 90 years old, Gallego knows that he will not be able to finish the project in his lifetime. But he keeps at it anyway, day after day, driven by faith.
