Why aren't there any Where's Waldo competitors? Martin Handford would spend 8 weeks drawing each scene, working from early in the afternoon, through the night until 6 in the morning. That's unreasonable. It's an unreasonable amount of effort.
Look at this pixel art piece:
It was published this year, the artist started work on it in 2008. It's a masterpiece. 15 years of working on a piece, on and off, is unreasonable.

Unreasonable efforts don't make sense - maybe you need to stop being so darn smart and throw good sense to the wind sometimes.

Are you capable of being unreasonable? Are you willing to put forth unreasonable effort in pursuit of something?
