In life it may be tempting to cut corners or try to do the littlest, easiest amount to get the results you want. But what I've come to realize if you try to cut one corner, another one will poke you back. It just doesn't work.
Life is full of "doing hard things" (love that book by the Harris twins). Life is not easy. We're called to take the high ride, walk in integrity, and not cut corners.
The earlier we learn this lesson, the better off we'll be!
