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!
