Day 1: On Living the Hard Way
Life’s easy when you live it the hard way… and hard if you try to live it
the easy way.
—Dave Kekich 1
Self-discipline means living your life the hard way: resisting
temptations and instant gratification, in order to receive bigger and better
rewards in the future. It’s certainly easier to avoid all kinds of discomfort
and indulge yourself whenever you want, but in the end, all that you get
from that approach is fleeting pleasure now at the expense of your future,
which otherwise could have been much better.
