Reaping Benefits: Continuing Motivation

Humans are inherently lazy. We like things to be easy. You can see this in how much technology has evolved to allow us to work as little as possible for things that used to be so much harder to come by. Why go to the theatre when we have Netflix? Why go to the store,… Continue reading Reaping Benefits: Continuing Motivation
