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!
