The magic of momentum

Action creates the energy of momentum. That's the power of small actions taken sooner than larger actions later.  

It's logical when we have a ToDo that we estimate for more than 15 minutes to suffer the fate of death by list. Instead of creating momentum with a small start of any kind, we postpone action for the whole effort. It's also logical to value a bias for getting something bigger done all at once, thinking that breaking it up into smaller chunks will make our efforts as fragmented as tasks suffering from multitasking. Trying to motivate ourselves isn't realistic because energy comes from action.

Small steps creates momentum. Keeping good notes sustains continuity between small steps. The time between steps enriches the reflective learning that supports the quality of the effort.
