What's the rush?

You want to lose 10 lbs. You want to get a raise. You want to learn a language, or start a biz.

Not only that, but you want it now.

You search for the latest hack, tip, or magic pill in hopes of avoiding doing the work.

You try the crash diet, and fail. You make a costly mistake. Frustrated you quit, only to try again with the same approach.

But in searching for the shortcut you often land on the longer path.

Anything worth while is well worth the wait. Don't double the length you travel just because the smell of easy wafts your way.

Enjoy the moment and the knowledge you're going to get their eventually.
