I’d rather struggle a little every day than not struggle and hope to be able to struggle a lot someday.
When you do some sort of work that you can build upon it makes the rest of your life easier. What can you do today that will make tomorrow easier?
It’s like eating right, today I’m going to feel like I’m missing out but someday when I’m 70 and can walk upright and run I’ll be grateful to my younger self. Depending on what it is, you might even pay for it the next morning.
When you think about doing something, it’s hard to ask if it’s going to be worth it. Our actions are supposed to make us happy, a lot of times they don’t. Short term sacrifice, long term gain.
