momentum-is-great-butMomentum is when something rolls down a hill, gathering speed as it travels.

But you have to get to the top of the hill first.

Momentum is when you are riding the crest of a wave in the ocean.

But you have to paddle out into the surf and probably get dumped a few times first.

Momentum is what happens when your work finally gets the recognition and credit it deserves in the public eye.

But you have to develop your skills in relative anonymity for a long time first.

You get momentum when you are feeling confident and have great self-belief.

But before you can become confident in your abilities, you have to become competent in your abilities.

Momentum is great.

But don’t forget what precedes it.
