Sometimes they say, gradual improvements makes you a better person and brings more harmony to you. A sudden workout and an urge for exponential improvement doesn’t work. But, they forgot to mention that for gradual improvement, you must be a persistent man, you must possess perseverance. Other than that, you may fail badly and sometimes weirdly.
Some may say, working by burning your boats is the best practice. Albeit the fact that you don’t need to be cautious over the things that matter. Your subconscious get trained of your aggressiveness. I as a neutral observer is a fan of this theory. Sometimes all that matters is winning, no matter how you’re getting or how you may get, sometimes all that matters is winning. As, Dan Brown says, History is being written by winners. Sometimes, the state of being only asks you to either Do or Die. Either improve or back off. Either work or give up.
Moral: Cause is important than your habits, feelings, lust and desire. That defines you. That makes you and that is your purpose.
