“Nothing Happens Until Something Moves”
— Albert Einstein
A key element of Einstein’s genius was his ability to distill enormous ideas down to bite-sized, easy-to-grasp concepts. When it comes to building momentum for your ideas, initiatives and future, it pays to heed this Einstein gem: “nothing happens until something moves.”
This truth should be self-evident. But far too many executives and politicians just don’t seem to get it.
Momentum in the Physical World
Momentum in the physical world operates according to knowable, demanding, ironclad laws of physics. Newton’s first law of motion is that “an object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force.”
Momentum in Business and in Politics
In business and in politics momentum operates according to knowable, demanding, ironclad laws of momentum that mirror the laws of physics. Here too “nothing happens until something moves.”
The pages of business and political history are littered with the corpses of good ideas and initiatives:
- That never made it out of the starting blocks, or
- Ran out of gas, sputtered to a crawl, then came to a dead stop; or
- Got run over, or off the road, by competitors, or competing ideas or initiatives.
