If you want to make progress in any area of your life, whether it be in a particular skill, virtue, or life path, I would suggest to practice both MODERATION and MOTIVATION.
Today I heard something very true:
It is possible to give 100% effort, 100% of the time.
Even when you’re not able to perform at 100% CAPACITY, you can still give 100% EFFORT.
I hope that makes sense. It’s something that I will personally keep in mind when I feel the EVIL twin forces of LAZINESS and BOREDOM bearing down on my mind and will!
May the force be with you.
