Building Momentum

Focus on what you can do instead of what you want to do, and you’ll be making more progress than half of your competitors.

Instead of spending all your energy thinking about what you want to do, you can focus that energy on actually doing some work.

Reduce the friction in doing a task. Start by doing something, no matter how small. Once you do, it will build up momentum towards bigger tasks at hand.

Here are a few examples. If writing an entire book seems too challenging then start by writing a small blog post. 

If going to the gym seems too challenging then start by playing your favorite sport every day.

If eating healthy seems too challenging then start by adding one healthy food item to your diet. 

Rather than getting intimidated by the end goal, you can focus on gaining small victories and building momentum first.
