Keep Your Momentum Year-round
We’ve officially ended January. Some refer to it as the “trial month”, but we know it’s the month where we are super passionate about any new year resolutions we might have made. And as February rolls around, that passion starts dwindling. Your diet just isn’t cutting it, you’re suddenly to busy for the gym, and that new project you started just isn’t as exciting anymore.
The goals we set shouldn’t be something we only work toward temporarily; we’d never reach them that way. So here we share 3 things to make sure you are doing in order to maintain the momentum you created at the beginning of the year. They apply to all aspects of your life, not just business. It’s something we encourage our employees at North Inc to do continuously in order to keep us moving forward.
1. Mentality Check – “What you focus on, grows.” Have you ever found someone annoying, and then suddenly everything they do is annoying? That’s because you’re looking for the annoying things. Similarly, throughout your day, or your work, if you are focusing on the things that are going wrong or make you unhappy, you will keep finding them over and over again.
It is very important to pay attention to what you’re focusing your attention on. If you focus on the things going wrong that those feelings of unhappiness, stress, and frustration will continue to grow. On the contrary, if you learn to identify progress, take mistakes as learning opportunities, and celebrate small wins, you will keep yourself motivated to see you projects/goals all the way through.
