How to keep the momentum going

keep up momentum
I’m still glowing from my successful consulting project. I feel energized, happy and confident. My next challenge is to keep this momentum going. How will I do that? I’ve heard that every time you take action, it’s easier to keep going. It’s something to do with the laws of the universe and molecules in motion.

It also helps to write things down. So here’s my plan for keeping things going:

* Learn something new everyday. There are so many free webinars and articles out there, it can be overwhelming. I figure if I break it down to one a day, it’s doable. Most of my new learnings will be about technology and marketing, but there will be some fitness, hiking and kayaking stuff thrown in for good measure.

* Get out to events at least once a week. Things quiet down in the summer, but even a trip into Cambridge to walk around will inspire me.

* Get serious about finding meaningful part-time work. Volunteer work is wonderful, but it would be nice to have some extra income too. I will be attending an information session about a program that helps women get back into the workforce after they’ve been out. I can’t wait.

* Get off the computer! It’s so easy for me to get wrapped up in browsing the Internet. Before I know it, a few hours have passed and I haven’t accomplished a thing.

* Continue volunteering. The HBS CAP projects will start up again in September; this is how I got involved with my project this year. There’s also a marketing organization in Newton, MA that does work for non-profits and small companies. I will check them out.

Do you have any tips for keeping the momentum going?
