That's exactly right. I've spent my whole life looking for an easier way, and usually finding it. It
used to drive my mom crazy.
After practicing law for a few years, I realized I could either work sixty hours a week and become
extremely wealthy, or just work part-time for myself but still live better than 99% of humans who
have ever walked the planet. It wasn't a hard choice. (Plus I followed my mom's advice and married a
rich girl. That helps a lot.)
