Creating Momemtum for Lasting Excellence

George, over at Leading Forward, offered up this one on "Life is about Creating Momentum!."

An excellent piece that has many implications for organizations wanting to move ahead, continually improving, and working toward achieving lasting excellence.

Some key takeaways:

  • Momentum is built through time and effort.
  • This is how it works in the real world, it is going to require hard work, you will need to persevere before seeing any results, you will feel like giving up. But remember, you're creating momentum, it will become easier and something is changing!
  • What are you chipping away at on a daily basis (momentum is created incrementally), seeking to develop momentum?
BOTTOMLINE: George's final comment: "Are you committed to invest in building momentum in these areas daily?" To make changes in life or in an organization, you have to be committed to making incremental changes - and do them every day. It is like learning a new habit - a good habit - and that takes time.
