is the other side of the coin from persistence.

It is the voice in your ear saying "Do it tomorrow".

It is the call of distraction. Your Facebook feed, Netflix binge watching. 

It is the treat that keeps us from being true to the healthy eating we've promised ourself. It is the 'Monday after the holiday' we promise that we'll start that diet or exercise regime.

It is the ache in our knees that stops us from running. The misplaced gym bag. The missing library card. 

It is the putting off till tomorrow that which can be done today.

It is the gentle amusements that take five minutes of life at a time.

We all face the resistance. It is how we respond to it that defines us.
