Bad is easy, good is difficult

Why, why, why is it so much easier to be bad than good?

I think one of the primary reasons is that there are a wide variety of excuses for being bad (“I didn’t have time,” “I’ve been meaning to do that,” “Someday…,” “I didn’t realize…”). When was the last time you used an excuse for being good?

It’s even easier to be mediocre than it is to be good.

And don’t even get me started on being great. Lots o’ effort needed there to be sure.

So, unlike previously whiny and thoughtful months, More than a living has been relatively quiet lately.

That’s bad. And that’s easy.

So let’s put a little effort into being good, shall we? I think we shall.

Even a little effort will make it better than bad.
