A period of time

If you won a prize at a competition, you will be happy. You will remain happy for a period of time then you will be normal.

If you lost a sum of 1000$ in the street (keeping in mind you are not a millionaire), you will be disturbed. You will remain disturbed for a period of time then you will be normal again.

If your neighbor's kid broke you car window, you will get angry. You will remain angry for a period of time then you will be normal.

If you listen to a classical music, your right brain will take the lead. You will remain in a creative and simple and romantic and strategic and out of the box mode for a period of time then you will be normal again.

If you spend 2 hours writing a C# program, then your left brain will get the lead. You will remain in a focused and analytical and hunger-for-detail mode for a period of time then you will be normal again.


Now compare all periods above. Some of them are great to make decisions at, some of them are really bad. Some of them rarely happens and when they happen we must use them to do something remarkable.

Is there a name for this period of time? If not choose one. Because I did.

  1. Sorry, but I can't help you there. Assume that you know it.

    A touch of humor and fact. Fine post!

    But the name of this period of time? I dunno.

    And thank you for the tip about classical music there . I've done it for nearly three hours now, and has written a lot on my novel. :D

  2. Andres,
    I would love to read your novel once you finish it,

    Well, about that period of time, I would call it Inertia, but I think we should invent another word because this one is related to physics.

    Just hope the novel is not in Norwegian, unless you will provide a translation.

  4. Ahhhh inertia, that difficult thing to overcome; The desire to keep the status quo, and the resistance to change.

    @Anders, so you're writing a novel. That is fantastic. They might get you to continue Robert Jordan's series.

    Yes, so difficult to overcome,
    defending the status quo is also a sort of inertia i didn't mention up there

    Thanks for dropping by
