Choosing the easiest option might seem like it is the closest path to your destination and dreams.
However, we need to face the fact that nothing in life is easy and thus picking the easiest path is not always the best pick.
You need to chase your dreams for a long time sometimes to achieve them, as they will not be given to you.
The most difficult path always leads to the top.
Working 8-5 for 40 years may seem like the easiest option, but is the retirement package good enough to take care of you for another 10 years without changing your lifestyle??
