The Science of the Job Search

Momentum

My wife is a science teacher and she is always teaching / reminding me about how God made the world.  Usually when we think of momentum we think of the locomotive pulling all of those train cars and how difficult it would be to stop them or when you are moving you have momentum.  But did you realize that momentum also KEEPS you from moving.

Newton's First Law of Motion: I. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

Law of Inertia

So if you are not DOING anything then you are in a uniform state of motion.  What is going to be the inertia that you apply to change your current state?  If you are in a job search are YOU doing anything to affect change?  What is force that you are going to apply to change things.

Newton talks about external force because he applied his “laws” to inanimate objects.  What about you?  Are the only forces that come to bear external?  A friend of me starts many of his prayers with “Jesus in me…”  God is in us, how will we allow him to move us?

James 1:6 ...the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
James 3:4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go.

Start today, do you want to be a wave on the sea or a ship? CHOOSE to move.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
Dalai Lama
