Easy or Better
EASY OR BETTER
It’s easier to eat out. It’s better to cook at home.
It’s easier to play someone that you know you can beat. It’s better to play the person who might beat you.
It’s easier to read the SparkNotes. It’s better to read the book.
It’s easier to do it how it’s always been done. It’s better to challenge, stretch, and experiment.
It’s easier to talk about goals. It’s better to lace up and go to work on them – off stage.
It’s easier to enhance your strengths. It’s better to go to work on a weakness.
We’re presented this choice literally all of the time. The problem is: easy is fast, easy is fun, easy is comfortable – and we’re wired to lean in that direction.
But we grow by choosing better.
We’ll never be perfect with this, but being aware of the choice can help us win the battle a few more times.
Before you start, ask yourself: “Am I choosing easy, or am I choosing better?
