Cutting corners also cuts down longevity. You might get there fast but it won’t last.
Do it the right way and you’ll run past the corner-cutters when they stumble and fall.
Getting there faster isn’t worth it if you don’t learn what you need to learn and become what you need to become. Pay the toll, run the route, do the work. It pays in the end.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways… (Psalm 37: 7)
