I hate the inertia that comes with laziness. Itâ€™s so easy to just let Netflix auto-start the next episode to whatever sitcom Iâ€™m watching that Iâ€™ve seen countless times before. Itâ€™s hard to break that cycle, even when after each set of three episodes, Netflixâ€”realizing how much I probably hate myself for not doing anything elseâ€”tries to break my spell and asks â€œContinue watching 30 Rock?â€
When I do break free from the cycle and actually start being productive, it starts a new cycle with its own inertiaâ€”an inertia of productivity. And thatâ€™s not so bad.
