Make the effort
Whatever it is that you’re saying, doing, eating, smelling, rubbing, throwing, mowing, pooping, singing, slinging, cooking, loving, or believing. Half-assed effort caters to “What If…” regrets. Have you ever half-assed a baking recipe and ended up with inedible “edibles”? Do you really expect to get the same results from doing P5X instead of P90X? This world is bizarre enough as it is, so knowing that you couldn’t have done anything more makes it easier to accept without having to understand.
We’re all capable of putting ourselves in the best position to succeed, so if you’ve decided that the job/body/guy/girl/life is worth pursuing, then you owe it to yourself to do just that.
