Momentum is the single greatest superpower that you can develop. Building it. Maintaining it. Safeguarding it.
It’s the fastest distance between where you are and where you want to be. And no matter how under-prepared you might feel or how few resources you have at your disposal, momentum is your ability to get there faster.
To do more with less. To win when the odds are stacked against you. There’s nothing more empowering than your ability to do one thing each day that matters. One thing that gets you closer to where you want to be.
You don’t need to do five awesome things. Or three. Just one.
That’s the power of momentum.
When you do one thing that matters each day you maintain momentum.
“WHEN YOU PROTECT YOUR MOMENTUM YOU DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE LURCHING AND FLAILING AND HELPLESSNESS THAT COMES WITH STOPPING AND STARTING.”
That feeling in the pit of your stomach that you’re tired and busy, but aren’t really getting anything done.
There’s no real secret to getting one thing done each day besides getting one thing done each day.
The easiest way to make sure that happens is to get up in the morning with a plan. To safeguard your momentum with a process that ensures you spend your effort and creativity in ways that protect your momentum.
But if the beginning of the day is important, so is the middle and the end.
Those times when you actually have to get the work done. Not just talk about it or think about it, plan for it, prepare for it, or tell everybody else what you’re going to do.
You can start building momentum at any time. There’s no qualifier that limits when you can get started, or how much momentum you can create.
This is entirely up to you. Completely within your control.
So what’s that one thing you need to do today? If momentum starts at any time with any action, what will that be for you?
