We are not equally good at everything we do. And the reason for this is, we tend to inspire ourselves to improve only those skills that give us an immediate return. For example, we focus more on our jobs instead of our kids’ education, more on our financial investments instead of changing our spending habits.
Sometimes we fail to understand something very simple and fundamental. It's our habits that drive our priorities. And our habits do not give us immediate returns. Take the example of smoking or brushing teeth before going to bed. One smoke or not brushing one day doesn't really matter, but if we keep doing this over a long period of time then we would see a significant impact.
Starting a good habit or stopping a bad one is one of the most difficult tasks. However, it changes our lives if we decide to take the first step and then decide to repeat it until we see a difference.
