You know when you are guilty of wasting time.
Growth, self accountability, being lazy is wasting time, reach goals first, chill later.
If you want freedom you have to implement discipline on yourself. Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence but rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act but a habit. Be unafraid that you are not yet great. Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying: I will try again tomorrow.
