Years ago, we came here to Florida to watch a Shuttle launch. It was one of those things on my Bucket List. And it was quite an experience.
And before the Shuttle program ended, I was pleased to find out that we can actually see a Shuttle launch from our home here on the Suncoast a little over 100 miles away.
The size of the fuel tanks and booster rockets of the Shuttle told us just how much energy is required at the early stages of a launch. Once speed is attained, very little is required to get the shuttle into orbit.
It’s the same with an airliner. They burn most of their fuel climbing to altitude.
Momentum is the key. An object in motion tends to stay in motion. And of course, an object at rest tends to remain at rest.
The sad fact is few people ever really get much momentum going in their lives and their business. It looks too hard. And they can’t seem to stick with it long enough to get to the point where less and less effort is required and more and more intended results are achieved.
It’s important to take the RIGHT action for sure. But sometimes ANY action is enough to break the habit of inertia and get things moving.
Whatever it takes to get yourself moving, do it.
For me, reading a book or listening to an inspiring or motivating audio file gets me going. Sometimes it’s a conversation with one of my mastermind partners or a review of my written goals. Music works, too.
The important thing is to get going. It's an old cliché but beginning IS often half done. Finishing well may be a valuable attribute, but if you never get started, you never get a chance to finish.
Remember, you don’t have to get it right; you just have to get it going.
