It is true that doing work
makes people tired.
However, in a scientific sense feeling tired after standing for a long time
in a tube train, or holding up a heavy weight does not indicate that work
has been done.
Example: Two opposing teams
in a tug of war may fall exhausted to the ground after a drawn match,
neither side having moved from from their starting positions. In this
situation, they have done no scientific "work". Only when one side begins to
pull the other over line is mechanical work done, this work is measured as
the force applied multiplied by the distance moved.
This is the famous physics
equation: Work = Force x Distance

frantically looking for new ideas for blog posts, having dozens of new
ideas or chatting with friends about your grand new projects can be very
It is like the "tug of war" where you
have not moved an inch ahead and feel too tired to actually publish
In some ways work and
energy, is to physics what wealth and money is to economics. Wealth can
exist in many form. In the pocket it is usually found as cash or
debit/credit card, but it can be spent in shops to buy goods, saved in bank
account or invested in property or shares.
When a man lifts a heavy
weight high into the air, he "spends" an amount of work in the form of
energy. But this work is really an investment. The weight he has lifted now
has more energy than it had before.
It is in the bank waiting
to be released again. In scientific language, the weight is said to have
increased in "potential energy".
|Best solution for all
serial writers is to create a "Writers' Bank ".
- Work hard to create a set of long and
short posts and keep them in a folder.
- When you have new ideas write them
down immediately and save them.
- Repurpose old posts with photographs
in a new format. After they have a fresh look release them slowly. The
new material has more energy.
This is like a long term investment and
you don't have to hurry at the last minute for new ideas.
Don't post anything even if you have
Wait for sometime and then gradually
release one or two posts.
Save 80% of your posts. Relax, enjoy or
take a long vacation. Tell a friend to publish the ready post in your
website on a particular date.
When the weight is allowed
to drop towards the ground, the energy is withdrawn from the bank and
converted to a new form. The weight gains what is called "kinetic energy".
This is energy of motion.
Just before hitting the ground the weight processes the same amount of
energy in this new form as was used by the man to lift it.
Then the weight hits the
ground and fritter away its wealth in a number of new kinds of energy - heat
and sound. The sound can be clearly heard, but the heat is not quite evident
in this case.
Continually dropping the
weight would, however, soon heat up the surroundings just as a large nail
becomes quite hot as it is hammered into the block of wood.

new in your personal website there will be various reactions. This is

unfortunately many unwanted visitors.
Be careful, vigilant, friendly and polite

If you repeatedly publish content you
will definitely feel the heat.
If you cannot tolerate the heat stop
repeatedly hammering into the wood.
