In aikido you definitely have to take a long range point of view, as there will be many periods of frustration for any honest student. Now its rolls, later it will be something else. This is the nature of learning a difficult art.

From the long range point of view: My teacher took 6 months to a year to learn to roll. Now he's a seventh dan and a Shihan. In the long run, continued practice is what counts.
