Engaging in productive activities can be compared with applying a force to overcome the inertia of procrastination, much like in physics where an object at rest remains so until acted upon by an external force.
When we procrastinate, our minds and bodies are in a state of rest, making it increasingly difficult to initiate action as time passes. By committing to even a small, useful task, we create momentum, similar to how a small push can set a stationary object in motion. This initial effort can break the cycle of inactivity, gradually building up energy and motivation. Just as inertia can keep us stuck in a state of doing nothing, the act of doing something useful, no matter how small, sets the stage for continued action and productivity.
