Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its velocity

It’s a concept from physics, but it can be applied to other areas as well. For example, Julian Shapiro talks about it in terms of goals and values in How to figure out what to do with your life.

Developing solid Habits can be a way to combat inertia and procrastination, because then you’ll have some things ingrained and won’t have to plan out every little thing you want to do.
