I’ve learned a lot these days, not intellectually, but rather spiritually. Along with aging, we see more clearly the limits as well as potentials of our abilities. In this process, what is plainly true and yet hard to follow is the impact of inertia, or posed otherwise, the power of good habits and then detrimental effects of laziness. They are just the different side of the same coin. We are what we repeatedly do. Just as one may get used to a proactive life style, one may equally well slide into vicious cycle of the laziness and disincentive.
That is how far intelligence can help us. The real strength of any understanding lies in action.
