On committing to the long game…
We humans get bored and distracted easily. We’re all for immediate gains over long-term outcomes.
Which is why it’s common for us to seek the quickest route possible to achieve our aims. Or give up entirely when it seems to be taking too long, or feels too hard.
“It’s easy to get on the path of mastery. The real challenge lies in staying on it.” ~ George Leonard(Author of Mastery, an aikido practitioner and central figure in the “Human Potential Movement” started in the 1960s)
