Taking it easy has its own perks. Self-improvement and change are not one of them. Taking it easy will only accomplish a few things. Sure you may be a bit more relaxed. Sure you probably won’t feel the pang of defeat. Sure, you won’t break a sweat. But are these good things?
Looking back on a life lived, you’d probably say ‘no’. Challenges exist to make us better. If we are constantly challenged with meaningful obstacles, we will change. We will change for the better. We will be molded into people that would make our parents proud. So, if it doesn’t change you, it’s probably not challenging you.
