"For so much of our lives, what we want, who we’d like to be, what we’d like to accomplish, is oftentimes right on the other side of that window. We can see it ever so clearly.

That may be what we deem as the easiest path, but many times there are alternatives that we’ll fail to notice in our blind desire to simply get there. Sometimes those alternatives will require us to work harder or smarter, and we shy away from them, because it’s safer to stick to what we know, to simply stay where we are comfortable.
