Keeping the Momentum Tip #10

Keeping the Momentum Tip # 10 fits in well with the current season, it's fall in the USA.

Understand your rhythms and cycles. The ebb and flow of life can affect your momentum. Some things naturally take more time than others.

Everyone has their natural way for doing things. Trust yourself and trust what you know to be true for you. Of course, this doesn't mean you can't be flexible.

Keeping the Momentum Tip #9

As we continue exploring the Top Tips for Keeping the Momentum Tip #9 is:

Open to new ideas. Be aware of your thoughts and of what is going on around you. Stop, look and listen are basic guidelines for picking up ideas and tips to add to or enhance what you are already doing.

As I reflect on this tip, I am reminded of the quote by the ever famous Anonymous:
A mind is like a parachute.
It only functions when it is open.

Our gifts of awareness and mindfulness will serve us well when we are open to new ideas.

Other points to consider include:
  1. start where you are (your baseline),
  2. be open to new ideas,
  3. take inspired actions,
  4. adjust as needed.

Keeping the Momentum Tip # 7

Keeping the Momentum Tip # 7

...guides and informs providing the way to better your best. That's why it is always a good idea to:

Monitor your progress. Here are two insightful questions to ask yourself on a periodic basis: What went well? What, if anything, can I do differently the next time?

Taking time to inquire, better yet write it down so you have a record and resource to monitor your progress.

What went well before, during and after. Depending on your situation, also remember to ask what went well with the beginning, middle and end.

The second question does not imply anything went wrong. It is simply asking if there might be anything you would do differently to enhance or improve future experiences.

Monitoring your progress is another way to review how far you have come.
