You're gonna have your whoa-mentum days- those days where no matter how hard you worked, the wheels wobbled and maybe even flew off and you skidded into the end of your day saying, "Whoa!"  Whoa-mentum days jack you up mentally and the next day you have the choice to either carry yesterday's whoa-mentum forward, by thinking negatively and working less, or you can instead choose to treat whoa-mentum days for the blessings that they are.

I say whoa-mentum days (WMd's for short) are a blessing because those are the rare occasions that you are alerted of momentum slippage. Use those days to determine what caused the whoa-mentum. Maybe you worked too fast with a customer; asked limited questions to see if the customer was "worth your time;" weren't persistent enough in asking for the business; or you just dialed in the effort, giving a half-baked effort because you weren't feeling the customer. If you can detect what specifically caused your whoa-mentum, then you can quickly make the course correction to get your month back on track.

The tricky part is that momentum is so sneaky and subtle that you don't realize you've lost it until it's too late because lost momentum usually takes weeks to reveal its full negative impact and it takes days-if not weeks to regain the rhythm back.

Take yesterday's whoa's and feed the mo-chine...the machine of momentum by applying the formula: Consistent action, applied strategically with persistence, equals Momentum.

I'll see you next time on the Blacktop!
