You can’t skip work. You can only delay it.

My dad has a favorite phrase . . . Do not equate the delay of consequences with the absence of consequences. I heard it from him countless times growing up. It’s how ost important things in life are delayed, not immediate.

It means just because you aren’t experiencing the consequences now, doesn’t mean you won’t experience them later. Just because you don’t see the impact, doesn’t mean there is no impact. Just because you avoid paying the price today, doesn’t mean you won’t pay a bigger price in the future.

Embrace the chase. Do the work.
