People stuck in a rut.

Under-achievers.

The inert.

Provocative Suggestions

Study Newton’s first law of motion in order to understand why you need to be shoved into action.

Emulate Einstein, prove Newton wrong and patiently wait for someone else to make things happen for you.

Relevant Physics

1 Newton’s first Law of Motion, also known as the Law of Inertia states: A body at rest remains at rest and a body in motion continues to move at a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force.

2 In 1905, Albert Einstein, a 26 year employee of the patent office in Bern, who spent his spare time thinking about physics, came up with the Theory of Special Relativity. He understood that time and space are relative to the motion of the observer and not independent of each other. Any measurements of time or space will therefore vary according to the movement of whoever or whatever is measuring them. By postulating that space and time are not absolute, Einstein seriously challenged Newton’s 262 year old view of how the universe works and was subsequently proved right. This theory is not to be confused with Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity but enough physics for now.

Quotations

You cannot push any one up a ladder unless he be willing to climb a little himself.

(Andrew Carnegie)


My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength. [1]

(Michael Jordan)

Something to consider

Notes

  1. This is very similar to Frank Farrelly's first hypothesis of Provocative Therapy: If provoked by the therapist (humorously, perceptively, and within the client’s own internal frame of reference), the client will tend to move in the opposite direction from the therapist’s definition of the client as a person.
