Inertia – the hardest force to overcome

Today’s blog post is a reminder we all need – especially when the new year starts and we’re filled with optimism and hope for things to change.

Without wanting to sound heavy-handed, cynical or critical – no one aims to become overweight, fat or obese and yet in the developed world, the statistics are staggering – 2 out of every 3 people is considered overweight…

How does that happen?

One bite at a time.

The concept is called inertia: Defined as “The predisposition for a body to remain in the state that it’s in.”

We know the feeling when we’re lying in a warm, soft bed, the last thing we want is to get out of bed.

That’s inertia.

Inertia is the #1 force that prevents us from achieving our goals, dreams and aspirations.

The following 3 blog posts are “classics” – I encourage you to read them and make the decision to overcome your inertia – TODAY, THIS YEAR.

Are you a champion? Do you have what it takes to become one?

Take the first step

Today’s blog post is about one of those images / quotes that for me represents a much deeper meaning than the self evident message of overcoming procrastination.

Often, in life as well as your professional career, you get to a fork in the road and the two paths in front of you are perplexing, confusing and maybe even scary.

Regardless of which path you take, your life, your destiny will be altered, changed forever.

“It is in our moments of INdecision
that our destinies are destroyed.”
– Dr Marc Dussault

Take the time to re-read that.

First Step, Goals, Goal Setting, ProcrastinationLet it sink in and the next time you are faced with a tough or difficult decision, just fast forward 10, 20 or 30 years and ask yourself… in hindsight (from your future self), “regardless of the potential outcomes, how will I feel about NOT making this decision?”

Regardless of the potential outcomes is a key distinction. Sure we all want to make the right decisions and avoid mistakes, but he/she who decides because he must, is a courageous, brave person.

Often, we hesitate and avoid the most important decisions in our lives. A non-decision is a decision, one that may haunt you for a lifetime.

Perplexed with a tough decision, take Pablo Picasso’s advice to heart: “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”  That should spur you to a more proactive decision making paradigm!

Often, decisions are avoided because of the confusion between the WHAT and the HOW of the decision. Simply put, WHAT you need to decide should be independent and separate from the HOW following the decision.

Once the WHAT has been decided, the HOW will find a way. Where there’s a will, there’s a way…

But first you must commit 1,000% to the WHAT.

Easier said than done.
