Why “Flipping the Switch” is a Stupid Myth We Should All Stop Believing Right Dang Now

It’s cliché AF, but I used to think I could just “flip the switch”. I thought I could just turn it on and deliver my best anytime it mattered, and win.

We Improve Ourselves Through Victories Over the Sorry-Ass, Lazy Side of Ourselves
