Stay away from easy

Let go of any wish or expectation for life to be easy. You deserve far more than easy.

Easy bores you, does not fulfill you. Easy wastes your time, erodes your strengths and skills.

Sure, by all means employ technology and other tools to make your efforts more effective. But don’t expect even the most powerful tools and systems to create original value without your continuing input.

Nothing of value comes from easy. Keep in mind that value is a measure of the difficulty necessary to create it.

Physical, social, and financial comfort can all be empowering, as long as they don’t make you complacent. Enjoy fully the good, pleasurable things, letting them inspire you to seek higher challenges.

Stay away from too much easy. You have so many better things to do.

— Ralph Marston
