How to measure momentum

The sustainability of your momentum is LOW and it’s time for a shift if

  • Others can replicate, improve upon, or offer a viable substitute for what you do.
  • Customers view you as undifferentiated.
  • You’re becoming distracted or bored. If you don’t love what you’re doing, you’ll probably quit.

The sustainability of your momentum is HIGH and it’s time to double-down on your momentum if

  • Few competitors can deliver and sustain what you do well.
  • Customers view you as highly differentiated.
  • Your passion, commitment, and enthusiasm are high.
