the easiest thing in the world is not to

Not to do it

Not to go the extra mile

Not to call that person

Not to work beyond hours 

Not to show concern 

Not to work out 

Not to save 

Not to help

Not to own it

It’s the path of least resistance. The path of minimal effort. 

Here is a little thought experiment 

Each time you chose not to, someone else choses to do it. And moves ahead in life. 

Each time you give up, someone is still at it. Saying I won’t give up. 

It’s the same person all the time. So by the time you count all your “not to” that person is way ahead in life. 

It’s the person you could have become. But to chose not to!
