The hard way

It’s difficult to know what the “best” thing to do is at any given moment, but this might be a good rule: Do whatever is the hardest, and by “hardest,” I mean the path of most resistance.

Should I run or watch TV?

Should I look at my phone or engage the people around me?

Should I write a journal entry or play a video game?

Should I go to bed or eat that cookie?

Should I spend the time to find the answer or give up? 

Should I play Guitar Hero or a real guitar? 

Should I read a great book or a celebrity magazine? 

This rule isn’t foolproof, but if we do what’s difficult, we’re usually doing what’s right at any given moment.
