You remember how painful “homework” was? You just did not want to do it, but it was something that you had to do. You could not get out of it. You had to sit there and do it and get it done and if you did not, then there would be no play time.
Funny how appropriate that was and how we should consider this as a mentality for our older selves. What, if anything, are you working on to improve yourself right now? Are you doing any homework?
Chances are there is something you want to do to improve yourself. Sharpen a skill, gain a skill. The problem is that as adults we can bow out and push it off. As kids we had short term consequences. As adults the consequences are not as visible and are longer term.
However, the homework still needs to be done!
