Overcoming the ‘Momentum of Zero’

by | Jan 26, 2018 | Snippets | 1 comment

Resolutions are easy. Keeping them? Not so much. But why?

I’m no scientist (nor do I play one on Facebook), but I’ll say this: Overcoming the ‘momentum of zero’ is tough.

As I’ve been finalizing my 2018 goals I’ve really felt this pain.

Objectively this sounds a bit ridiculous. I mean, how hard is it to walk around the block, grab a glass of water instead of soda (my current weakness), or even write a short post to share? Sadly, if you’re anything like me, it’s super hard! Darn it, that couch is comfortable, the soda tastes good, and I swear the blank page is taunting me.

Overcoming this may not be easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s complicated:

1. You have to truly want the change. Apparently simply thinking ‘It would be cool to write more because then everyone will like me’ isn’t enough. Who knew?
2. Convince your mind that small steps toward your goal are far better than NO steps. I know what you’re thinking–“if the elephant example is next, I’m done.” You’re safe. It’s all good.
3. Make peace with the fact that you’ll fail along the way. As it turns out, we can avoid the slippery slopes away from our goals if we plan another route so let’s do that, OK?

I’ve found keeping these ideas in mind gives me a greater chance for resolutions to become reality.

What works for you?

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac
