Watching the NCAA tournament reminds me of the power of momentum. As a former high school basketball coach, I remember pounding the idea of “Big Mo” into my players on a regular basis. Momentum, both positive and negative, is contagious. It often decides the outcome of a basketball game. It also often determines the outcome of your business.

Where is your momentum? If it’s on a negative slide, you must do whatever it takes to change it. Make alterations to your schedule, try new techniques, visit clients, ask for more referrals, etc. Take calculated risks and get the momentum turned.

If you are on a good cycle, put your foot on the accelerator. Keep momentum going as long as you can because it will literally “will” you to success.

“Big Mo” is decisive in basketball and in your business. Get it on your side.
