Reclaim your momentum
If you should happen to lose your momentum, don’t give up on it. Do what’s necessary to get it back.
When the flow of your effort is unexpectedly interrupted, don’t make that an excuse to stop. Instead, let it prompt you to quickly recommit to the effort.
You’ve put in a lot of work getting to this point. Make all that work count for something by continuing on with it.
It’s natural to be dismayed about losing your momentum. So let your dismay inspire you to reclaim that momentum.
You were knocked off track, but that’s no reason to wander around in the wilderness. Put all your focus on getting back to what you were doing, getting back in the flow.
Your forward momentum is worth the work you put into creating it, and worth getting back if you lose it. Reclaim your momentum, and make it stronger than ever before.
