Effort requires no Skill
1) Never fail due to a lack of effort because effort requires no skill. You can fail because of superior competition, bad luck, or poor execution, but you cannot fail because you didn’t try your best.

It’s one of those elusive obvious facts that somehow still evades most people. You may not have certain skills, but if you’re disciplined enough to just work hard it’s likely you’ll get somewhere with your effort.

A man should never be ashamed to own that he is wrong, which is but saying in other words that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
-Alexander Pope

Another formulation is "80% of success is showing up".

A while back I made myself a rule: I can skip my judo class as often as I want, but I have to pack my gi and drive there before I can decide to skip. I've been making steady progress ever since.

By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and we wept, when we remembered Zion.

What if you cannot put in effort, over an extended period of time, not because of lack of genuine will, but because of exhaustion, as in lack of pure physical energy?

RE: Effort requires no Skill
All I could suggest is finding something to cut out. Figure out what you top priority is and put all your effort towards that (and what you have to do besides that, e.g. job, etc). You might have to completely sideline one thing in order to concentrate your limited time and effort into another.
