Keep the momentum up

This fits great after yesterdays post about starting. Once you have started and have gained some traction it’s more important that ever to stay motivated and keep the momentum up.

Moment what?

Momentum, the product of mass and velocity of an object. If you started eating a pizza and it tastes so freaking great that you just can’t stop. That’s momentum. The pizza example ain’t that good, but exchange the pizza with a project and eating with working. Now that actually is momentum.

If you are in this state of mind, if you are on fire, keep it up, keep the words, the code, the videos, whatever flowing. But you ask, how?

Think of the little milestones you already got

What parts of the project did you already set up? How much lines you have already written? How many tickets you have moved to Done? If you think back about what you have already accomplished, this can keep you going.

Hold on to the vision

Why you started the project? To solve a problem, to cure your own itch? Will it make you happier? Will it serve other people?

By constantly remembering yourself why you do it, it will get easier and easier to keep working on your project.
