The easy-to-access beaches are always full of people. They’re nice fun places for a while thanks to the abundance of activity. They feel boring and crowded very soon though.
Great beaches are never easy-to-access. They have that 1 kilometre walk from the mainland amidst bushes and thickets. The wonderful thing about this additional “resistance” is that it eliminates pretty much everyone. That 1 kilometre of resistance is the difference between mainstream and niche paradise.
Exercise first thing in the morning is similar. The resistance in that case is getting out of bed, putting on exercise clothes, and getting out. Practicing your guitar requires you to tune it and reading a great book requires you to get past the “I’m too busy” mental illusion.
Perhaps great beaches are a lesson for us. Get past the resistance… and the good stuff follows.
