7. Clarity > 65. Employ Mental Momentum

Employ Mental Momentum

Recognize your mind’s tendency to keep doing what it’s doing, and you might learn to see the forest as well as the trees, for your own benefit.

Your mind is like your car: it has its own direction and momentum. The momentum is important: once your mind is moving in a certain direction (that is, focused on a certain subject), it will continue moving in that direction until something—either the driver (you) or a concrete embankment (life)—alters its course.

For our purposes, mental momentum comes in two varieties: positive and negative. Positive mental momentum happens when you are caught up in something you ought to be doing; negative mental momentum happens when you are caught up in something you ought not to be doing.
