For whatever reason, oftentimes when we ask to ourselves “How can I do such and such?”, what we want, in reality, is to do that without being challenged. We want to wake up early in the morning but going to sleep on time does not seem like an option. That is, by definition, not taking responsibility, it’s manipulation. The things that will bring us the most satisfactory results require actual commitment and responsibility. And they, of course, come with a price.

This is not to be taken too literally or to an extreme, needless to say, we should leverage our brains to best of our abilities. It’s not always the hardest and longest way that is right, however, whenever you catch yourself pondering about what else can you do for too long, you’re probably trying to avoid taking responsibility.
