How To Build Momentum

How To Build Momentum

  • Have a goal that really resonates with you. Don’t have a goal that you think you should have, or that other people have as you will easily lose momentum.
  • Set benchmarks. If your goal is clearer then it is far easier to set meaningful benchmarks you will attain on your way to meeting that goal. I advocate Stepping Stones approach to set these benchmarks.
  • Publicly commit. This can be scary, but for some, very effective. Announce what you are doing on social media to the world.

Routines don’t work for most people. People with young kids, pets, people who travel a lot or work remotely, find it extremely difficult to follow the same routine every day. If you keep trying, you will only end up frustrated.

Instead of focusing on setting goals, create better systems that allow you to make a little progress every day, regardless of your schedule.

Motivation is a muscle that we need to build

Motivation does not happen to us. It is a muscle that we need to build. After an inspirational talk, we might feel motivated for a while but will fall back to our old routines.

What is lacking is a behaviour to put our knowledge in motion. In the beginning, we will hardly notice any progress. With practice and repetition, our brains will create patterns of learning. Eventually, the tasks that required a lot of effort will become effortless.
