He has half the deed done who has made a beginning. (Oliver Wendell Holmes, 19th century physician and poet)
It’s called inertia, that is, things at rest tend to stay at rest. Sometimes it’s hard to get started on a project we know we should be working on. Actually, inertia also describes the tendency of things in motion to continue in motion. So, Holmes’ words should encourage us to get up and set our project in motion. As he says, half the battle is won at that point.
Finishing is better than starting. (Ecclesiastes 7:8). Now you should finish what you started (2 Corinthians 8:11).
