I Get Why Some People Don’t Put In Much Effort

Danny's iphone 022I understand effort is relative.  As I listen to comments and watch people’s actions I notice there are people who truly believe they are working hard, but when compared to my work ethic they certainly are not.  Then you can take my effort level and compare to others and you get the same result.  As in life most things are completely depending on comparison; unless of course max effort is defined as one doing the best they can do.

When I think about effort I can also understand why some learn to only give a little.  Maybe life has taught them that their best effort will not always result in them “winning” therefore they decided early in life that the effort was not worth it.  Maybe some people don’t like to put in max effort because they want to fly under the radar.  I know several people who have this attitude.

There are no guarantees, but that shouldn’t deter us from working to our max ability.

Attaining through ‘effortless effort’

Here is another approach to personal development and growth: effortless effort.

ONE TUSK

So there are two ways to grow. One way is the way of effort, resolve labour. There you are the master. Whatever you do you are the planner. Then whatsoever you attain is nothing but your own game. Much can certainly be achieved through effort, through labour and resolve. But whatever you attain will be smaller than you. And whatsoever you attain is called the world. What you get through resolve and labour is worldly. Your ego is strengthened by it. – it is a search for your own ego.

You Can Do What You Set Your Mind on Doing

I have heard this song so many times and caught most of the words, but never really listened until a good friend of mine sent the song to me.  These words express what I think about human capability.  I truly believe that every single person is capable of accomplishing what it is that they want to accomplish.
