The simplest choices are often the hardest to make, they are often the most important too. This is because they're easy to overlook. For example that one extra beer at the end of a long night, that extra hour at work, that extra piece of chocolate. Everything that you allow to be "EXTRA" in your life compounds. Good or bad. Extra reps at the gym are great and extra beers at the pub are terrible. Thus compounding the hypothetical brick road you are laying for your life. Be consistent in your choices not your excuses and lay a good foundation for your life.
