Idle or Lazy? I Prefer Physics

“Inertia is the resistance of any physical object (read “Judy”) to a change in its state of motion or rest (the later, not the former), or the tendency of an object (“read Judy”) to resist any change in its motion.”

“The principle of inertia is one of the fundamental principles of classical physics which are used to describe the motion of matter and how it is affected by applied forces. Inertia comes from the Latin word, iners, meaning idle, or lazy” (I prefer the meaning of “resting”). Wikipedia

I was talking to a wonderful client today, smart, perceptive, talented, dedicated to personal growth (how can that NOT be wonderful), about having inspirations and aspirations but doing nothing about them other than thinking.  Was it fear of failure?, avoidance of success?, lack of focus, ability?   All of the above?  I flashed on my blogging (hey, sometimes it IS about ME . . .)

I had blogged almost daily for a few years.  Then recently my heart went wack-o (literally) and I just didn’t have the where-with-all to think much less write.  

It’s been a struggle to get back into the habit of talking to all of you. (well, no, to be truthful I’ve not struggled as that implies movement).  It’s been out-of-sight-out-of-mind-floating-around-in-the-ether-what-have-I-got-to-say-anyway kind of thing.

How many times in my life – in YOUR life – has inertia of motion kept me doing a task that was needed or important to me.  And how many times in my life – yours too – has inertia of rest kept me from doing something potentially gratifying?   I admit it’s happened in more areas then I’d like to admit.

Not everything is psychology.  Much of the time it’s just physics.  Nice to be able to blame something other than my psyche.
