The problem with standing still

Posted on: March 12, 2017

It makes sense to pause for a cause. An educator might require learners to take pit-stops to reflect on what they are learning, if any at all.
Standing still is like moving backwards if you do nothing as the world rushes by.
However, pausing is not the same as stopping dead. Both pausing and stopping drop momentum and create inertia. Pausing is followed by efforts to overcome that inertia. Stopping dead is wallowing in the status quo.

The biggest problem with stopping and not realising that you might actually be going backwards. This is relative to everyone else moving forwards.

Initiative can easily devolve to inertia. This happens if you sit on your accomplishments instead of seeking the next challenge.
