न मे पार्थास्ति कर्तव्यं त्रिषु लोकेषु किञ्चन
नानवाप्तमवाप्तव्यम् वर्त एव हि कर्मणि॥३--२२॥
na me pārthāsti kartavyaṁ triṣu lokeṣu kiñcana
nānavāptamavāptavyam varta eva hi karmaṇi||3--22||
The Blessed Lord Sri Krishna Says in Gita..
Oh Arjuna, I have nothing left in this world which I should perform as if it were my bounden o duty.. 
There is nothing in this world which is achievable that I have not already achieved. 
Still I remain in action, I do my karma..
The Lord remained as a Karmayogi because He being the Supreme person of the age when he manifested on earth, if He did not set Himself as an example and remained lazy and inactive, others also would be tempted to follow the path of inaction..
But for us the lesser mortals, the satisfaction can come from only a sense of contentment..
The Blessed Lord had the capacity to achieve anything He deemed fit, but we have our own limitations..
If we set our targets at achievable limits (अवाप्तव्यं) then alone we are likely to have a reasonable satisfaction that we have really achieved something..
For us the ordinary humans, remaining in action alone can keep the body and mind alert and active..
Here the law of inertia speaks.. every material body remains in a state of rest or of uniform motion unless it is acted upon by an external force to change that state.. ( Remember Newton)
Usually we are in a state of mental and physical inertia.. see how difficult it is to get out of bed..? 
Usually our role models are Kumbhakarna or Rip van winkle..
It is said that Winston Churchill, during his World war days, used to mark all the instructions he issued with the handwritten caption..
