The threshold moment

I find that everyday for me has a `threshold moment' - a moment where, if I don't do my evening meditation now, I will not do it at all, or do it while being half asleep. There are thoughts - ohh so many things to do.. why stop now, can do it later. But from experience, after the threshold passes, you get caught up in all the events and tasks that come.
Need to remember - all the tasks you've completed and events you've attended will not give you anything in the end of this life.
All that matters in the end of this life - how much mental defilements you have eradicated. Your mental conditioning and karma - that is what you will carry onwards.
