It’s May, already.
And not only that, its coming towards the end of May.
Can you believe it?
The year is rolling on — faster and faster, I sometimes feel — and Blue Jai’s Word of the Month is MOMENTUM.
I’ve been more than usually busy lately, which is why I haven’t written this post until now, but while I’ve been busying myself with the various balls I’m managing to keep in the air at the moment I’ve been contemplating the nature of momentum and how important it is to being successfully busy, and successful in business, too.
And my musings have made me draw the following conclusions about momentum:
- In physics, the law of momentum states that an object in motion will stay in motion until it meets a resisting force. To my mind, identifying the resisting forces in your world and finding ways to smooth them out will ensure that you keep moving forward. Eliminate distractions, and focus on what brings you closer to your aims.
- Momentum, to me, is also something that builds. One of the things that enables me to build momentum is knowing the basic (often repetitive) tasks that I need to accomplish to ensure my day flows. Attending to these tasks enables me to create a more rhythmic approach to my day, and momentum often follows.
- Finally, momentum demands movement — in order to create it, you have to be moving towards something. So even when you have days when you don’t want to get out of bed, just do it. Keep on moving!
So this May, my challenge to you is to find your path, remove the resistance, and build your own momentum.
