It will never be easier than now...

…to do what you love.

Ramit asks What’s easier now than later?

Although I’m not old enough to know much about the later, I'd bet everything that this answer is correct: Doing what you love.

Why?

Seth Godin says “Dreaming was easier”
when he was in his 20s. Now he has to “push” himself to do it.

Meetpaul Singh says it was once easier to take the “risk to discover and pursue one's passions. I think back to starting a company and joining business school and medical school all within a few years. What was I thinking? Could I do it now? I’m not sure.”

And in Ramit’s original post, he seconds that motion, saying “taking risks in investing and life” is easier because you don’t have anything to lose.

And, my personal favorite, it’s easier to live “in situations your parents would abhor.” How much money do you really need?

I recently calculated that if I lived with my parents and cut out my traveling, I could live on less than $200 a month. Hmmm….tempting. It would be tough, but if it enabled me to do what I love most, it would be totally worth it.
