Frictional force in our mind hinders the workFrom the Physics concepts, it is more difficult to move an object from rest but once it starts moving it requires comparatively less effort to keep it moving. This due to static and dynamic frictional force coming into play when the object is at rest and moving. Static friction is always more than dynamic friction.
Similarly, in life, it happens that when we are going to start some work or activity there is a lot of hesitations and doubts in our mind as to how we will do it, how long it will take and what will be the result. We spend a lot of time thinking about it. Due to this we sometimes delay starting the work. Hence we experience something similar to static friction in our mind which tends to prevent us from starting. But it is commonly seen that once we are able to start the work somehow we get more comfortable with it and feel that we can do it without many problems. Here there is something similar to dynamic friction coming into play which is always less than static friction.
Hence to be able to do anything we just need to overcome this static frictional force in our mind due to our fears and hesitations and start our work.
