The Motion of Momentum

The Motion of Momentum

Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.

This week, we’re thinking about momentum. Charles J. Givens puts it best:

Success requires first expending ten units of effort to produce one unit of results. Your momentum will then produce ten units of results with each unit of effort.

Momentum is one of the strongest indicators of your ability to carry out a new routine, habit, or path forward. We see it constantly in sports. For example, over the seven years to the 2015/2016 soccer season in the English Premier League, the team that scored the first goal won the game around 70% of the time. 

As you reflect on the amazing effort you've put into your work, relationships and yourself this season, what are some ways you could build on the small wins to continue growing that momentum?

Think quick and small.

We'd love to hear from you!

What's something you wanted to do, learn or get better at? What the first step you need to do to move in that direction? Sending an email, texting someone, asking almighty Google?

 



A few things for you to click on:

🎥  Momentum affects every aspect of your life. Check out this crash-course on momentum and how we can harness its positive attributes.

📖  Why do we have moods? According to this, the function of our moods is to represent momentum in the mind. How can we use our emotions to generate momentum?
 

For the last few months, we've been focused on building our prototypes of the Aduri smart cushion—a meditation cushion that will transform the experience of meditating. We've been sharing early versions of the experience in a few presentations and pitches at NYU, the NYC Media Lab, and companies large and small. It's been inspiring and fascinating to learn from the feedback of everyone we've been meeting.

We're getting ready to share this with you and hear your feedback before showing it publically.

Are you interested in joining? Reply and say, "Yes!" and we'll make sure you're the first to know. (Thanks for those that responded last week!!)

Warmly,
