I was revising my notes today. Came across a handy tip. So, thought to share it: Never mix verb forms.

Be careful with below constructions.
X is Y
X seems Y
X has remained Y

such constructions are a form of comparison and X and Y in these constructions should strictly follow rules of parallelism i.e. X and Y should be grammatically as well as structurally parallel.

consider the following examples:

To welcome each day wholeheartedly is embracing life fully incorrect - infinitive + gerund
welcoming each day wholeheartedly is to embrace life fully incorrect - infinitive + gerund
To welcome each day wholeheartedly is to embrace life fully correct - infinitive + infinitive

my 2 cents:

so adjective to
enough to

I ate so much to win the contest. --- so much takes an action to its extreme level.
I ate enough to win the contest. --- enough takes an action to a sufficient level to achieve some result.

If underlined part says so + adj + to, then meaning wise you can not replace it with enough to.
actually these two idioms are not interchangeable as an interchange can change the original meaning of the sentence.
