So, this morning marked yet another early wake up without getting my ass to the gym or out walking with the mutt. Every night I think to myself, “Z, get moving in the morning. Get up early, don a touque and head out to the gym. Or, take the dog for an early walk.” But, alas, I hit the alarm and sleep in for a little while longer. (This morning, I did get out of bed early, but enjoyed a nice breakfast and read a little but more of my book). This paragraph created to quell any hypocrisy on my part
I guess my point is, I keep on choosing the “easier way” with some things and not with others. But I have noticed that when I do get up and apply myself to something (whether it is getting fit in the morning, or taking some extra time in making sure a weekend household task gets done right) I feel great. The feeling almost surpasses that of taking the easy way out.
So what do you think? Why are people more inclined to take the easy way out?
This notion can encompass a myriad of things; including saving money, exercise and general non-laziness, taking pride in one’s work and attacking daily tasks with gumption, and even doing things yourself.
Seems people (more so these days than before) are seeking to live by this notion of instant gratification and easy processes.
I have more on this topic, but would like to see what others think. This also may lead to an exploration of an “off-shoot” to the Path of Least Resistance (meaning if you tire of me and my ranting, do NOT egg me on… )
Go ahead… Explore.
