Inefficiency

Many times we feel the pressure to adapt perfectly to our environments, not to waste our time and to maximize it.

Inefficient does not mean ineffective, nor lazy: You're a bit messy and use more energy; you might make mistakes and try new things. You develop flexibility and adaptability, making you better prepared for new opportunities.

Inefficiency Allows for Change

Inefficiency forces us to develop other traits that give us the flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances.

Leave aside the fear of new challenges. Leave aside the fear of not being the best. When you put yourself in situations where you aren't the most skilled, you learn and grow and adapt. When change comes, you will have a broader range of skills to explore new possibilities.
