... usually ends up being more difficult. When something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
The reason a path looks “easy” is because it hides its difficulties in plain sight. And you choose the easy road because you did not take the time to really understand what it was you were looking at.
And you have to learn to apply brakes to it.
Because the truth is, without knowing when to slow down, it’s going to go faster, and faster, and faster, and you’re going to skip all the little things you needed to learn and acknowledge about each other along the way.
The difficult lesson is knowing the value of change. Because we usually fear change.

When learning is difficult, you're doing your best learning, in the same way that lifting a weight at the limit of your capacity makes you stronger.
When you keep trying to remember a piece of information, you interrupt the forgetting process and help cement the memory of that information into your brain.
It's a strategy of mixing up the type of problems you solve when you're testing yourself.
That way, the testing conditions are more similar to real life, where you first have to figure out what kind of problem you have on your hands and then solve it.
Acquiring information is not learning.
