Random thoughts on Inertia

Same story, different year. It seems like every year I lament that fact that I don’t write enough. And every year I try to do better. This is me trying to reboot the writing engine…again.

It’s strange how I somehow manage to ignore the things that have proven to make me happier, healthier, more productive, and less stressed. I don’t read enough. I haven’t run a race in almost two years. I haven’t posted a blog in almost a full year. I don’t meditate every day like I should. I definitely don’t floss everyday like I should. And I often ignore my productivity tools even though I know they’ll help me get more done.

Maybe it’s human nature. Maybe it’s just laziness.

But you gotta try, you know. Just keep pushing. Do it once today. Once tomorrow. One more day after that. The funny thing about inertia is that it works in both directions.
