Whatever beginning goals you set for yourself, following through on them will build momentum and a sense of achievement and those small success will point the way to bigger ones
Pamela Glass Kelly
Momentum. I’ve heard it argued that it is inconsequential; that it doesn’t matter. I disagree.
Creating momentum in your day is CRITICAL to success. How do you do this?
Write your day before you do it.
At the end of each day, write down your “TO DO” list. It will be fresh in your mind as you wake up in the morning. It will give you a sense of purpose in the morning instead of aimlessly going about your day.
Do the most important task of the day FIRST!
This can be the one thing that is the hardest thing or the one you don’t want to do. It could also be the thing that IF you do this thing, it will create positive momentum the rest of the day. Ask yourself, “What one thing, if I did it every day in the morning would change my life for the better” and do that thing.
Create a 3-5 morning ritual and stick to it
The morning ritual will create momentum and be an autopilot venture. Doing these 3-5 things every day will become the things you look forward to doing. It could be writing in a gratitude journal or meditation. It could be exercise or writing. Whatever it is, don’t complicate things or draw them out in length. These things can take all of 30 minutes to an hour but will improve your day.
Listen to and Read 1 motivational/inspirational thing each day
Inspirational and motivational videos and articles are something I listen to and read each day. Remember Zig Ziglar’s words –
Follow your bliss with relentless passion. Do the thing you’re afraid to do. Start the journey to become the best version of yourself.
