A natural question for someone to ask prior to undertaking a specific task would be, "How much time will this take?". For those who manage their time and also value their time, this type of information is extremely beneficial and helpful. Unfortunately, this question tends to leak into other aspects of our life and may take on various forms, but become less beneficial. "How long will this last?". "How much should I give?". "How much effort should I expend?". These are similar questions that often leak into various areas of our life, including practice and workouts. "How long will the hard workout last". "How many hills are we going to run". "How much effort can I exert or how much pain can I avoid". If our goal in life is to truly reach our full potential, then both the answer to questions such as this and the motivation behind the question itself, become a limiting factor and/or a demotivating factor. For example, what happens when we reach the deadline and we aren't "there yet" or we haven't reached our capacity? What happens if the effort required to complete the task is less than our full effort and we therefore under-perform? What happens when we are able to give more and thus accomplish more but we stop too soon? Therefore, what is the correct answer to the "How much" question? If the goal is to truly reach our full potential, then the answer should not be "just enough" but the answer to "How Much" should be "ALL ... until the goal has been completed".
