Effort is not even in the equation
Do not even measure how much effort will big things take. Do not have it in mind when deciding over two decisive options. Effort is just a concept; nothing more. If it has to be done, effort will not matter. If it is the choice you want, the one that makes your heart pump blood and your mind dream dreams, then effort does not matter at all. Go for it. Go bold. Go big. Effort will take care of itself when needed.
