Choose the Long Route
When something comes easy, pause. Evaluate. It might be easy because it's a shortcut. Because it isn't the right path. Because it isn't good.
Don't let temptations corrupt you.
When at a fork, choose the long route, not the shortcut. Choose what's right, not what's easy. Choose what's good, not what's convenient.
Not only will it be better for the world, for the people around you, but it will be much, much better, satisfying, and fulfilling for you too.
It keeps your integrity intact and your actions aligned with your values. It gives your future self something to be proud of, not ashamed of.
