A Basque word, Gaztelugatxe means “it’s a lot of effort, but worth it”. Seth Godin recently posted on this concept and suggests that it is the opposite of fast, easy and worthless.

Modern society emphasizes the fast and the easy and much of the time the result is worthless. Everyone is looking for short cuts (what are now called hacks) to make everything as fast and easy as possible.

Sometimes making hard work or difficult work easier is a good thing.

Sometimes the continuous search for the quick and easy option is not so good.

Often the real pleasure in life and the real lesson in life is in the journey, not the arrival. Be wary of shortcuts – they may remove the quality that makes life truly worth living.

Seth Godin’s post is here.
