The law of inertia may be sabotaging your future. The laws of physics suggest that a body at rest tends to stay at rest. Thus, to procrastinate is natural and the laws of physics are working against your efforts to progress.
If you are avoiding a dreadful project by finding anything possible to distract you, you are not alone. Millions of people procrastinate and fall behind on goals.
The trouble is the effort it takes to get started is difficult, it's much easier to do nothing.
Pretty soon, you lose control over your life. Just like a leaf that falls in a river, you drift anywhere the current goes. Control over your life slips away as you go wherever the environment takes you, instead of actively carving your destiny.
The flip side of this equation is that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. If you can get over your urge to procrastinate and push into action, you will initiate new momentum.
Like a ball rolls down a hill, forward movement tends to build speed. The law of inertia also suggests forward movement builds momentum and progress becomes inevitable.
Change is hard. Use the law of inertia to your favour by taking continual action until movement propels you forward.
