There is most certainly something to be said for momentum. I like to think of it as a catalyst for determined motivation, perseverance at it’s' best. Once we begin to have slight momentum with a project it seems (for me) to inspire and ignite forward movement in relation to that task or, even, an entirely different project. I like momentum. I was going to pen an article about motivation, in as much for myself as for others. But, this morning, I stumbled onto an email that required forward movement and fulfillment on my part and then that movement somehow translated into continued momentum with other tasks. So, this leads me to contemplate momentum as an invigorator for motivation and as an enemy of procrastination. Perhaps if we apply focused movement, by simply starting a task, then the momentum will take over and carry you through to its completion and maybe even spill over into other areas of your life.
So, get motivated…start moving…gain momentum…and achieve more.
Motivation + Movement + Momentum = More More of everything you seek, all that you aspire to, and desire to accomplish, just simply more.
Motivation is described as: “the psychological feature that arouses an organism to action toward a desired goal; the reason for the action; that which gives purpose and direction to behavior”
Momentum is described as: “force or speed of movement; impetus, as of a physical object or course of events”
So, assigning purpose and direction to a persons’ behavior arouses action; and then adding force or speed of movement in a course of events will result in, well, results.
Who doesn’t like results?
Then, after achieving results, we get the prize…sense of accomplishment.
The feeling of accomplish is rewarding…a job/task completed feels refreshing and the resonating refreshed feeling is what I believe sparks continued momentum.
