Whenever you start off on any kind of project, especially if it's a long project, momentum is important.

Take somebody who starts to exercise, after having been a couch potato for many years.

The first couple weeks pretty much suck.

It's hard to start, and it's hard to keep going. Whether you're riding on a stationary bike, going for a walk or jog outside, or doing some calisthenics, part of your brain is screaming bloody murder.

After all, it's pretty insane, on one level, to do something that is painful, without a clear goal in sight.

Sure, if you are hiking up a steep mountain, you can see the top is getting closer and closer, so you push yourself to keep going.

But if you're just running laps around your neighborhood, part of your brain is wondering what in the world is going on.

But if you keep at it, you'll eventually get to a tipping point.

Where the immediate benefits outweigh the costs.

However, a lot of people give up before that point.

We tend to have a hard time seeing benefits unless their right in front of us.

Unfortunately, even if you've been diligently exercising for a while, if you stop for a certain length of time, getting started is difficult.

A lot of things are like that. They take a lot of effort to get going, and you need to put in a lot of effort to keep going.

But some things aren't.

Some things may take a while to "set up" or to get the benefit, but once you get it, you've got it. You don't need to do any more work.

Sure, you may be a little "rusty," but once you've got it down, you can pick it up again.

Like playing a musical instrument, for example. Once you put in the time and effort to learn it, it won't take very long to pick it up again if you haven't played in a while.

Another thing that is like this is social skills.

Or at least they can be.

Unfortunately, many people see social skills as something that requires a lot of momentum.

Because most of us have social anxiety of some kind, we think we need to keep "pushing past" our fears and anxieties.

And like exercise, if we stop for any length of time, it can take a lot of effort to get started again.

Luckily there's another way. It involves changing the way you see things, and verifying that these new paradigms are much more effective than the old ones.

And once you set those up, you'll have it for life.

Fearless social confidence and interpersonal skills that will take you a long, long way.
