Using lubrication

Answer:

Wheels and lubrication.

Explanation:

Man discovered long ago that putting wheels under something that is to be moved makes the job much easier. (Sliding things around when they needed to be moved just became a pain.)

After a while those wheels did not turn very well, so man invented WD-40.

I hope this helps,
