The Physics of Real Life 

Sir Isaac Newton taught us that objects at rest tend to stay at rest and objects in motion tend to stay in motion. This is just as true for humans as it is for falling apples. People in motion tend to stay in motion. The 3-Minute Rule works for big goals as well as small goals because of our inertia. Once you start doing something, it’s easier to continue doing it. I love the 3-Minute Rule because it embraces the idea that all sorts of good things happen once we get started.
