Move forward or back

Equilibrium of collinear forces

If the resultant of forces acting on a body (in the same plane, and in a straight line) are zero the body will not move or will continue to move at the same speed. In other words, if moving already on a project, any additional force upon you will cause deceleration of your momentum. It is hard at times though to know how much force you need to exert on an issue. (whether of thought or action) I guess one has to break out of simply reacting to things as they happen or only to stop them once they happen. If already moving you will continue to move but will only notice a slowdown once it is huge. When hit you don't strike back with an equal force but a greater force. Just like when you start some work - you must imply greater force to start than you need to continue. (sorta like breakaway torque)

Ender's game

The author of the book that this post is named for is Orson Scott Card, whom I had heard of before but whose book I knew nothing. My mother gave me the book for my 30th as it was published in the same year I was born. If you had never read it you won't get what I mean but if you have:

I never thought I was emotionally invested by pg19 but when Valentine cried to Ender "Come back to me! I love you forever!" it just hit me...

So now in my 30's and once again.. ah.. same ol. What stock am I supposed to put in my age again?
