The secret of getting ahead is getting started. (Sally Berger, author and curator)
Inertia is a law of physics that says an item at rest tends to stay at rest until moved by an external force. A person suffering from inertia might be said just to be lazy. (Think of Garfield, the cartoon cat.) If Berger is right, maybe all it will take to get us “off our duff” is to just get up and get started on a worthy project, maybe even self-improvement.
Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave. (Proverbs 12:24)
