The Promise of Ease

If we answer and never listen,

If we do and never learn,

If we speak and never think,

If we repeat and never change,

If we habituate and never alternate,

If we avoid feedback and do not seek to improve,

If we aim and do not fire (or fire and do not aim),

If we decide and do not act,

If we resolve and do not follow through,

We then resign a bit of ourselves to the lure of comfortable negligence, where self-command, willpower, and responsibility are pushed aside for the promise of ease and the luxury of the known.
