“Plans with shortcuts cut short your plans.”
Every time we take the “easy road”, we place a ceiling on our potential. What was once limitless now has a measurable outcome from its conception, that being a high probability of failing to accomplish your goal to its fullest capacity.
The best laid plans are dynamic: they motivate growth through the ability to change. You may start off small but completing the first task allows you to build something far greater to achieve. Stepping stones for the upward climb. Simple, yet never easy. So work hard. And never stop.
