It’s easy to charge the credit card, rather than wait to make a purchase with cash. It’s easy to binge watch another show on Netflix. It’s easy to play on our phones, tablets, computers to surf the web and to lose ourselves in click bait. It’s easy to incessantly check our social media feeds.
Of course, it’s easy–that’s why everyone does it.
What’s difficult is to be the one who cares more or to help someone who needs to be helped. What’s difficult is to make something that needs to be made and to ship your work in the world. What’s difficult is committing to a practice like blogging every day or going to the gym.
Habits are not accidental. If you are not intentional, habits will form themselves.
