It is very easy in this world to cut corners at times. People will often give us the benefit of the doubt. We start to think if it is mostly what we said we’d do, it’s good enough.
But consider all the magical, wonderful things that are created in this world. Be it careers, friendships, business relationships, books, technology (and more). And consider that so much of the wonder is in doing exactly what we said we’d do (and more).
There is a quote somewhere that says, “There are always two paths, one hard and one easy. And the only reward of the easy path is that it is easy.”
