Routines are not for when it’s easy;
Routines are for when it’s hard,
When you’re unsure,
When you can’t remember why you ever started it.
First and foremost, follow the routine.
On a day when it’s easy, that’s when you can reason about its value.
But on a day when it’s hard, there’s no reason to reason,
There is only reason to follow.
Five minutes in I remember.
Five minutes in I feel it.
Five minutes in I am happy I didn’t cave.
