“The best way out is always through.”
– Robert Frost
By page six, I thought I hated Heart Of Darkness. I was convinced that it was the most overrated book I’d ever picked up. Rather than setting it down, I made myself an ultimatum: if I made it halfway through and was still bored, I could quit reading. A few hours later I was savoring the final paragraph and regretting that I’d almost given up on such an enjoyable book.
At the gym I was sure that I couldn’t do any more squats. Instead of quitting, I promised myself that I’d attempt at least one more set before calling it a day. Three sets later, I was finally finished.
This weekend I want you to do something very difficult, I want you to take up an unpleasant task and see it all the way through.
