When you encounter a bump in the road or when your plans are thwarted, you can either react passively and be paralyzed or respond actively and galvanize your thoughts and resources around your intentions.
For example, if you had an idea about how a project was going to work out and something goes amiss, say, a person who was going to help is no longer available or a tool you were planning to use breaks, you have a choice to make. You can either let it stop you or you can work quickly to rearrange things so that you don’t lose momentum.
If you lose enough momentum in enough small areas of living, your life will stop moving forward. People think it’s the big things that do them in, but it’s really the small ones. They pile up over time.
Remember this and you’ll make much better use of the inertia in the world you center.
