We know what it is to get out of bed on a freezing morning in a room without a fire, and
how the very vital principle within us protests against the idea. Probably most persons have
lain on certain mornings for an hour at a time unable to brace themselves to the resolve. We
think how late we shall be, how the duties of the day will suffer; we say, “I must get up,
this is ignominious,” and so on. But still the warm couch feels too delicious, and the cold
outside too cruel, and resolution faints away and postpones itself again and again just as it
seemed on the verge of the decisive act. Now how do we ever get up under such circumstances? If
I may generalize from my own experience, we more often than not get up without any struggle or
decision at all. We suddenly find that we have got up. A fortunate lapse of consciousness occurs, we
forget both the warmth and the cold; we fall into some reverie connected with the day’s life, in the
course of which the idea flashes across us, “Hollo! I must lie here no longer” – an idea which at that
lucky instant awakes no contradictory or paralyzing suggestions, and consequently produces immediately
its appropriate motor effects. It was our acute consciousness of both the warmth and the cold during
the period of struggle which paralyzed our activity. This case seems to me to contain in miniature
form the data for an entire psychology of volition.

William James
