Momentum of effort

When are you most likely to make the effort to get things done? It’s when you’re already taking action.

If you get the day started by doing a lot of nothing, the whole day is likely to go that way. Yet when you begin the day with a positive action, even if it’s just a little one, you set the powerful momentum of effort in motion.

Once you’re moving and working and creating and achieving, you’ll tend to keep it up. That’s why it is so important to get started early in the day.

What happens when you’ve just experienced how good it feels to get something done? You become eager to do more, so you can create that great feeling again.

There is some little something you can do right now that will give you a taste of accomplishment. Do it, feel the good feeling, and notice how motivated you become to do even more.

There’s always a quick way to create the momentum of effort in your life. Get yourself going with positive action, and put that momentum of effort and achievement to work for you.
