What you’ll hear in this episode:
Today’s episode is all about the Effort Paradox.
I defined what it is and shared examples of how it requires a lot of effort to make something look effortless.
We’ll discuss why effort is important and how you can motivate yourself to choose effort rather than procrastinate.
Lastly, we’ll talk about the flow state, which is those feelings of energized focus and enjoyment that can only come through effort.
Excerpts and Highlights:
Effort is required to make something seem effortless.
Effort costs time, energy, and money; but it creates back value.
Performing a mentally effortful activity in which one is fully immersed produces positive feelings of energized focus and enjoyment in the activity.
