Creating and sustaining momentum amplifies performance.
I started writing morning pages in July of 2014 — it’s been an invaluable outlet to express what’s on my mind and see it down in front of me. I review them every 100 days, and it’s interesting how much my own progress stands out… as well as how I’m stuck.
But to your point about these habits increasing momentum, I’ve notice most of my other habits in life stemmed from morning pages conversations I have with myself… I can see where my ideas start and how I toil and tumble with them until they reach a point where I commit and dig in.
Once a habit is there, it becomes so effortless to continue and expand… creating the space and committing to a new habit is the hardest part.
