It takes more energy to catch up than it does to simply keep up. This extra expenditure of energy ends up creating a greater deficit which in turn feeds the loop to fall behind yet again.

This is simple physical conservation of energy theory.

What happens with individuals on a psychological level is an entirely different story. The tendency is to attempt finding shortcuts rationalized as improved techniques, greater efficiency, or new moves etc… Where in our lives are we creating shortcuts to catch up when we should have been playing keep up?

LESSONS: Gradual loss of capacity creates dangerous thought patterns to look for shortcuts Spend the time and energy now keeping up before you have to spend more catching up later
