Deciding Between Two Good Options

Bruce Lee famously said that he doesn’t fear the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but he fears the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. I doubt the late mister Lee would have actually feared anyone so predictable, but his point is clear: proficiency matters.

That’s why it helps so much to do less. By concentrating our efforts on one thing, we get good. Perhaps even great.

But one-trick ponies usually don’t do well in life. That’s why we need to diversify our skill set.

And then things get tricky. After all, we can’t develop and grow our skill set all at once.

So we must choose.

Read or write? Study or practice? Sleep or work? Rest or run?

Both can lead to your goal. But what should you do now? That’s the question you have to ask yourself every day.
