Keeping the Momentum Tip #5

Tip #5 identifies one of the key things you can do to keep the momentum going:

Keep things simple and realistic. Make it a point to select one or two things to do initially. Once they become a natural part of your behavior, or you determine that 'it' isn't right for you, select one or two more to implement.

Making note of your experiences along the way allows for the opportunity to get valuable information. This information provides insight that leads to greater clarity, focus and confidence. Also, keeping things simple and realistic:

* is a form of self-care.
* reduces stress.
* supports you personally and professionally.
* builds skills through a series of small successes.

Keeping the Momentum Tip #4

So far on the way to Keeping the Momentum, you:

* have given yourself permission,
* are honoring your natural way,
* look for insight into what has worked

and now your next step is to...

Create a plan of action. Knowing in advance what you intend to do makes it easier for keeping the momentum going long after the meeting, seminar or event. Planning is time well spent.

Your plan of action can be as simple or elaborate as you like. Do make sure it is specific, realistic and that you have time included. By that I am referring to estimates for how much time something is going to take, when you intend to begin, frequency (if relevant) and end dates (for those things that are time bound). Block out time on your calendar to create and regularly review your plan of action keeping your momentum going .

Also, remember a plan of action is an effective support tool, not a burden. It serves to keep you focused, remind you of what you are keeping momentum for, as well as energize you.

Here's to Keeping the Momentum,

Keeping the Momentum: Tip #3

Keeping the Momentum Tip #3

Last week readers were encouraged to Honor your natural way. This week you are once again encouraged to trust yourself and trust what you know as you...

Look for insight into what has worked. Your experience, whether it is work, education, life or..., is where you can look for what worked for you in the past. This is one of the few times where looking back can help you now and in the future.

Additional things to consider include:

* what were the circumstances?
* how did you handle the situation, i.e., what were the thought processes and actions that generated the outcomes?
* what skills and resources were beneficial? in what way?
* how might what worked in the past apply to a current situation?

You already have your answers. All you have to do is look for insight that works. And yes, it is okay to tweak as appropriate.

Keeping the Momentum,
