Resistance is a foe

“The professional has learned better. He respects Resistance.
He knows if he caves in today—no matter how plausible the pretext—he’ll be twice as likely to cave in tomorrow.”


- Steven Pressfield


This quote really struck me.

We’ve all experienced it.

The day we skip the workout.
The week that passes without us practicing our art.
When we hit the snooze button.
That meeting where we don’t put ourself out there.
The day we put off the task that has been hanging over our heads.

Yes, we all know Resistance well. Steven Pressfield simply gave it a name.

Resistance is a formidable foe.
