There are two things I want to say about momentum.

Firstly, Momentum is the name of a Google Chrome extension I’ve been using for the past few weeks. It takes the place of your new tab page and has some really great features such as:

  • A personalised greeting
  • A new, beautiful wallpaper every day
  • The local weather
  • An interesting daily quote
  • A single item to-do list that asks what the focus of your day will be

It’s a really simple add on, but I find the combination of daily content and personal focus motivates me when I open my laptop in the morning. You should give it a try.

Gathering momentum

Secondly, today was the first time I truly felt momentum in my work. I was able to achieve all my objectives for the day and I found a natural flow. This was the place I was hoping to get to when I gently started my thesis grind.

To be honest, I was a little worried then that I would start slowly and never really build up a sustainable speed. But through a kind and patient build up I’ve been able to foster a great space for work. And now I feel ready to take on the rest of the challenge.
