Choosing inconvenience for greater returns

July 7, 2017


With the last train leaving in <2 hours and a choice between the cable car or hike — we chose the latter. No regrets.

People often ask me how I define hard work and the first discussion that comes to mind is with @tombilyeu and @lisa2motivate. Lisa shares her story as a single mother with $12 to her name and unable to buy diapers for her baby — literally hitting rock bottom. What struck me was the amount of inconvenience she deliberately faced, whether it was building her company (from inside her closet) every night or putting her hobbies on hold to save money. And while there is no hacks for hard work, there are a few considerations that I have found beneficial in my own process



1) Make the decision to work hard — tools, content and better running shoes can equip you, but at the end of the day, it really does come down to taking ownership


2) Triple down on less activities — aka focus


3) The ‘hard work’ only starts when things get difficult — whether it is in your studies, gym or work


4) Stretch that ‘extra set’ everyday


5) When faced with a trade-off, take a moment to ask why the inconvenient choice exists — I can assure you that avenue will almost always yield larger returns in the long-run
