The wise shortcut vs. lazy shortcut

I like shortcuts. I’m always looking for the quickest way to get somewhere. “If it’s worth getting there it’s worth getting there fast” is my mantra for driving my car.

But all shortcuts aren’t created equal. There are wise shortcuts and lazy shortcuts.

The wise shortcut gets you there with the minimal time and effort, with no compromise in quality. It’s the standing up from your desk 35 times in a day that is better for you than 15 minutes of cardio workout approach to life.

The lazy shortcut gets your there with minimal time and effort, but the quality is compromised. It’s the missing the last set approach to working out.

One approach is smart, one is lazy; don’t mix the two up.
