We are a microwave society and it seems we are programmed to just go for the easy, quick fix. Everyone wants convenience and for things to happen quickly and it seems as everywhere you look that is the advertising message we see like , “lose weight fast” or “make money now.”
Taking the easy way will not challenge you or help you improve. I recently started training for a 10K, I was not a runner before training for this race. When I would see a choice of a flat path or a path with some sort of hill I would go for the flat path. The flat path was the easy way and did not challenge me to get better. It did not build up my strength or help me to become a better runner.
Taking the easy way often means we are taking shortcuts. In the long run shortcuts are not beneficial. I go back to the idea of losing weight for an example. When you try to lose weight quickly it is not healthy and it is not sustainable for the long run. When you lose weight by taking short cuts it is a short term solution.
As Maya Angelou said, “All great achievements require time.” Remember not to just go for easy. Be willing to put in the effort and the time and you will reap the rewards.
