Start Smart then Pour it On

You have to start smart before you can finish well. Finishing strong  has a nice ring to it  but isn’t worth much if you’re not even in the race. Thousands upon thousands of people never even get started. Sad but true.

Physics was not my favorite subject in school, but I must admit a certain fascination with Sir Issac Newton’s  Laws of Motion. Especially as they apply to momentum (he calls it velocity) – a critical force for success. Inertia is a state of rest – the place of thoughts, ideas and dreams.  The difference between success and mediocrity is transforming an idea into a decision – then a decision into action.

Never leave the scene of a decision without taking action.

It’s amazing how we expect massive results with very little action. It takes massive action to generate massive results.
The tremendous energy it takes to get momentum can be staggering, but necessary. Think about a plane on the runway. It takes a lot more fuel and thrust to get into the air than it does to maintain a cruising altitude.

This principle applies to any and every undertaking. It’s said that the truly successful few are willing to do what many aren’t willing to do so they can have what most only dream of.

Dream. Plan. Prepare. Then Pour it On.

Success requires first expending 10 units of effort to produce 1 unit of results. Your momentum will then produce 10 units of results with 1 unit of effort.~Charles J. Givens
