To watch than do.
To work for someone else than work for yourself.
To walk than run.
To quit than continue.
To continue doing the wrong things than quit.
To settle than thrive.
To get discouraged than feel optimistic.
To take than to give.
To live in despair than in happiness.
To want more than to be grateful for what you already have.
Just because something is easier does not necessarily mean it is better. We are constantly searching for the shortcuts to avoid putting in more time and effort. Taking shortcuts results in the final result not being as good as it could have been.
