They say that it’s best to aim for the low hanging fruit. A lot of the time this is true, but it isn’t always the case.
In the short term, it might make sense to take advantage of whatever comes your way first. The low hanging fruit are easy to reach, but they aren’t necessarily the best fruit on the tree.
In the long term, only doing what is easy won’t get you very far. If you only go for low hanging fruit, you’ll never taste the sweetness of overcoming a difficult challenge, and achieving something worthwhile.
Learning to climb a tree takes patience and perseverance, but if you take things step by step, you can reach the top.
It helps if you’re not weighed down by stuff. Carry too much, and your burden will hinder your progress. Let go of the things that don’t matter, and focus on the things that do.
You only get one chance at life, so why not aim high? The sweetest fruit grow at the top.
