When convenience sets the priorities of thought and action in your life, know that aiming to think less and act without effort would rarely deliver a valued outcome. To aim to avoid any experience or challenge inhibits our growth and the feasible lessons to be learned for ourselves. In sacrifice we learn and continue learning.

It is easier to take a daily pill than it would be to physically rehabilitate and recover from a bodily injury, but which is the right thing to do? Maybe step beyond convenience to find out.

It is easier to adopt a googled opinion that simplifies your life in the moment than it would be to think and act from your experiences in real life conditions to determine your course. Which is the right thing to do?

Invention and innovation are wonderful things that will simplify our lives as society advances, but they shouldn’t forsake our own personal and self-initiating learning at every turn. There is a right way and the convenient way and the two may often differ from one another in overall value.

Lazy can lead to disappointment and delusion when no discipline of ourselves need be applied. When no sacrifice need be made, the transferable lessons available within the experience are lost. Set your priorities to advancement and a lifetime of continuous learning to do the right thing over the pursuit of perpetual convenience.

“An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You should never see an Escalator Temporarily Out of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the Convenience.” — Mitch Hedberg —
