So you start a major project - a book, a paper, a renovation, a garden, a website, a fitness routine - and at first you're quite charged up about it. You make good progress and sense that you're "getting there." Then about halfway through you start losing steam. Alternative projects suddenly seem far more attractive, and the one you have chosen seems misguided. Should you switch? Should you keep going? Is this about you and your flaky lack of perseverance, or is it normal? Welcome to the project resistance curve: An introduction for both mental health professionals - and their clients.
