Choose What’s Hard

by Lee Buford on February 10, 2011

Choosing what’s hard is just that…it’s hard. It’s not easy. It’s not comfortable. It’s not fast. It’s not convenient. As a result, it’s not very appealing either. But it is usually better.

We live in a world that espouses the values and benefits of ease and convenience, but we’re not necessarily better for it. We’re often making choices that sacrifice long-term wins for short-lived gains.

Laziness is easy. Work is hard.
Quitting is easy. Persevering is hard.
Indifference is easy. Commitment is hard.
Bitterness is easy. Forgiveness is hard.
Rebellion is easy. Obedience is hard.

Think about the consequences the next time you want to choose what’s easy. Think about the end rather than the means.

Choosing what’s hard will likely be your best option, even though it won’t appear that way. But, then again, appearance is easy. Results are hard.

Choose what’s hard.
