Easy is usually fun. Easy workout. Easy tasks. Easy days. Easy money. Easy love.

But easy expires fast, like a piece of Manchego left out in the Spanish sun.

Hard is much less enjoyable.

  • Hard workouts can make you suffer.
  • Hard work can be unforgiving.
  • And hard periods in a relationship can wear you down.

  • It builds work ethic and resilience.
  • It builds portfolios.
  • It builds lifelong friendships and romance.

So when it gets hard, endure.

It’s usually a sign you’re building something lasting.
