A coffee to keep up the momentum or just get started…
c 2012 Kelly Babcock

Once I get started with a task I can sometimes carry things through and complete tasks all morning. This is a phenomenon I would call the magic of momentum. It’s fun to see how you can just start to go through chores and complete projects with little effort. This is unlike the first thing on your list which took a lot of effort. Why does the first thing take so much effort. Is it because you will go through the transition of a relaxing state of mind to a more task -oriented get things done state of mind. Just how do we get that first task done.

Well the first task to complete may be easier with a reward. It may be true that the first task can be completed with promise of a snack or a phone call to a friend. Later, after the task is completed you can put off the reward till you get more tasks done. Being effective in keeping up with your chores can make you feel happier. Use that joy as a reward also.

Momentum can be a great tool. I’ve found that getting a lot done can lead to a feeling of fulfillment. I hope you find that you can use this tool also. People aren’t lazy they just need to get that first thing on their list crossed off.

I hope if you feel inclined that you will tell me a bit about yourself. I would like to think that some special time spent off the net is also important for you or me. In this time you could sing or dance or just sit with a book. In the mean-time it's nice to have met you because there is some quality time spent on the net. I hope you have had time to look at your favourite song or look up your favourite author. My favorite song is True Colour by Cyndi Lauper and my favourite author is Gretchin Rubin.
