against the tide

Sometimes as we go along our THPL journey we will find that it is all too easy to get caught up in what is easy, the path of least resistance.  And there is some merit in this approach.  No need to use up extra energy or time to get done what we need to get done.  Ah, but, therein lies the conundrum.  If we do this, take the easy path, avoid obstacles and constraints, it is possible that we will stop developing.  So, maybe we need to think about going against the tide, doing something different, stop following what others are doing, and mostly pushing hard when there are obstacles or resistance.  We know intrinsically that when we go against the tide we will develop more strength, more resilience and find better ways forward.  Pushing hard for a period of time will make a difference, and sometimes a really big difference.  Here’s to going against the tide, yea baby!
