After the holidays, my family went home recently and started to resume our normal routines. My husband said that he lost the momentum after a while- eating more than usual, staying late than usual, and doing less than usual! I, myself, have felt the same thing. The body started to entropy and lost the formal balance when not being used to its former state.
That is the same as in many businesses and organizations that lose its balance, fell prey to the recent shiny object, and wasted enormous amount of energy looking for that formula for success.
One County Manager has asked me, 'what is your secret, Maiden to that success in engagement? I said, there is no secret. You put in work, day in and day out, and accomplish what you have set out to do, even surpass it. The secret (which is the book) is the biggest scam on earth including all the pyramid schemes that exist. Until now, people fall prey to it despite the fact that is proven to be fake and unethical, keeping the founders rich but not the latest entrants. People want quick fixes for less amount of money, time, and energy.
The momentum allows us to keep doing what we ought to being done at less energy because we are in that zone. Some call it the field, or some call it, just everyday effectiveness, which is to me, what is it all about, sans all the esoteric names some gurus put to it.
The problem with all of organizations and businesses is that they prolonged the time to go back to current performance and preoccupation because of many disruptions, distractions, and discontinuities that prevail in their minds. The longer you return to your normality (whatever new normal would that be) the harder it gets. Being in limbo is not a good thing.
