Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Quick Fixes & Shortcuts
The tendency for wanting quick fixes and shortcuts is not unheard of, if anything it’s very much talked about, and very much a part of day-to-day life, desires, and hopefulness in rough moments.
When you look into the topic with inner growth in mind you uncover various things that bring about insights on you, your inner core, and this desire; but also why something permanent and in-depth doesn’t have a quick fix or shortcut per se, it’s the step-by-step perseverance that does the trick.
Here are some ways to learn from “quick fix and shortcut” moments through inner growth, and in doing so, add to your journey.
- List two to three lifetime goals you’ve tried finding quick fixes and/or shortcuts for; and write about your experience. Next to each goal also write about one thing you’ve been doing consistently in time to achieve that goal. Compare the two and find the benefits for your inner growth and in pursuit of the completion of your lifetime goals.
- Every time you find yourself wishing for a quick fix for something, list two reasons why you need that fix to be now and two reasons why a steady pace to reaching the fix works just as well.
- Once a year look back at the shortcuts you contemplated as a possible solution to something and what reasons came about that made you realize the shortcuts weren’t going to help you obtain your objective completely.
