You can't spell momentum without "moment." When we're doing something worthwhile, no matter how meaningful and life-improving, there's an easy phase and a hard phase. The easy phase is in the planning. We get to think about how great it will be to make a change and finally be more like the person we know we were meant to be. Then comes the "moment." It's that interval between the fun part and the harder part where it requires commitment. Here, towards the end of January, we're reaching that moment. Let's keep going! This is the moment where we can build momentum. And the best part is that once we've got momentum on our side, it starts to get easy again. That's when it's really fun. And that's what changes the world. It's people like you who chose well at this moment when we could back off or build momentum.
