I think its a mistake to pick or choose that we find easy and avoid that we find difficult. Sooner or later, practice will seem like the hardest thing in the world to do or continue with. What will you do then? Abandon it?
Maybe you should commit yourself to a particular approach and maintain it for a year or two before assessing whether it was worthwhile or not.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
