that damn proverb

If there is one proverb that I don't understand (I hope I will, though, shortly after), it's..

Berakit-rakit ke hulu, berenang-renang ke tepian
Bersakit-sakit dahulu, bersenang-senang kemudian.


You can see the meaning, or English equivalent in Wikiquote, scroll down to letter B, and it's the eleventh proverb in section B.

Don't fret, I am not (indonesian=bukan) "don't understand" the meaning, but don't understand myself for kept not doing it. Personally, I don't think that right now, I am an ├╝ber-achiever, swinging for the fence, or will not just try hard enough. So quit it, and be the man of this proverb! Whip your butt and be it! But don't be sadomasochism. *Garfield-grin*
