Hope you are wondering what on earth is displayed in today's picture. Take a moment and make some guesses. It is really a very common object. At least in my life.

My bad habits

There are certainly some bad habits in my life. Procrastination is one of them. Fortunately I am not always lazy. One of the reasons that I postpone actions is my drinking habit. It could have been worse. Alcoholic drinks are not my biggest drinking problem.

Recurring similar difficulties on my path?

When I am pressured by others or by myself, I may pursue ideas. Things I desire to realize. And actually I may face regularly the same problem which I am unable to resolve.

That sounds a bit complicated. You are correct. That is why I do not make progress.

Time to restate my problem

If I struggle with a problem that I can not solve, it may help to question what I really want or need. It is useless to try something where I find myself blocked or unproductive. I may wonder if there is something else that I am able to do, which helps me to feel and respond better.

Behaviour caused by issues that I am unable to resolve

As soon as I realize what I actually am unable to resolve, but still trying to resolve, I can choose to stop the attempts and seek a new focus. An end to a deadlock situation.
