Either because it'll work relatively quickly and then we can move up that ladder and do something better or because it won't work out right away and then we can move on to something better.
Unfortunately, most of the time none of the above holds true.
And instead it'll always take a lot longer until we can move up that ladder just like it'll always take a lot longer until that thing is clearly not working out anymore.
So we end up spending most of our time stuck in between.
In between jobs.
In between relationships.
In between cities.
In between thoughts...
Always waiting for that big breakthrough.
Which, of course will never come because we're too busy spending our time, energy and resources on "in between things" believing that they're just temporary.
Which, of course they aren't.
Because they take about the same amount of time, energy and resources the "real things" take to successfully pull them off.
At the end of the day, the easy stuff and the in between stuff takes the same amount of time, energy and resources the hard stuff, your real stuff would actually take.
However your real stuff might look like...
So why not do that right away?
