If you find yourself facing two options that can bring you closer to your goal, go with the one that is less comfortable for you. Practise that real hard. You might want to just give up and go with the easier option but hang in there. The idea is to train your mind and body to get comfortable with the uncomfortable so that you are better prepared for the hidden surprises that life loves to spring on you when you least expect it to. This will help to train you to be more resilient and flexible with your approaches on working towards your goal and life in general because in the end, it is not knowing that will save you, but your conditioning and constant practise.
