Following the Laws of Inertia
An object will stay at rest or stay in motion unless acted on by a net external force –Sir Isaac Newton
I clearly remember learning about the laws of motion in middle school, doing some experiments to see exactly what it was all about. At that point, I thought it only pertained to balls, but I have now found it can go way beyond that.
Have you ever noticed yourself following the laws of inertia? You get going, and ain’t nothing going to stop you! Then just a few days later you find yourself having a hard time pulling your butt out of bed. Why is this?
When we have places to go and things to do, we go into SUPER PRODUCTIVE MODE and follow the objects in motion portion of the law. We might not do everything that comes to mind, but the results are pretty impressive. On the other hand, when we don’t have much to look forward to or work towards, we find ourselves dragging ourselves out of bed late in the day and almost accomplishing nothing.
This all goes back to the idea, if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. If you find that you follow this pattern in your life, use it to your advantage. Pick a “day of rest” and enjoy a good book, spend time cuddling with your loved ones, or spend time meditating. Then makes some goals to work towards on the other days of the week and get going!
And don’t forget if someone asks why you did nothing but read a book one day, you can always use the excuse, “I’m just following the laws of inertia.” It’s one of my favorites!
Enough is Enough
We live in a fast paced world. Everything we do or plan to do seems so important and usually has high expectations of us. Not too long ago, the majority of an average person’s day was spent taking care of the bare necessities of life. It is rather ironic that now in a day and age where we have an abundance of time-saving devices, we seem to have less time than we have ever had before.
Here’s a little experiment . . .
For the next week count how many times someone uses the excuse, “I just didn’t have enough time.” Or even just try it for a day. You can almost not go through a day without hearing someone complaining about their lack of time. It is something we all say, because it is so true. We have burdened ourselves with so much that we just can’t possibly get everything done.
It’s time to say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!”
The sole purpose of this blog is to help us over-committed, well-intentioned creatures find a way to manage this mayhem we call life without feeling guilty, worthless or get this . . . overwhelmed.
