Dominoes (DW #927)
Jun 01, 2021
Have you watched how dominoes fall when you line them up precisely? Quite fascinating isn’t it?
Do you know the physics behind the dominoes? Even more fascinating than watching them fall.
A domino can apparently knock over another domino that is about 1 1/2 times larger than it. (Do try this at home!!)
So, imagine setting up a chain of dominoes such that each one is 1 1/2 times larger than the prior one. Let’s say 13 dominoes. The first domino is only 5 millimeters high and one millimeter thick—so small that you need a pair of tweezers to put it in place. The last one is 3 feet tall and weighs 100 pounds.
Push the micro-domino over and BOOM!!! More and more power is amplified as each domino in the chain topples over.
I will take the scientists word for it that there is in fact, 2 BILLION times more energy in the last sequence than in the first.
WHAT??? Yes – 2 Billion!!
How does this apply to us?
If we line up a series of micro-goals towards our big goal, completing one micro goal will generate a lot of momentum in the process towards the next goals – domino like.
- Let’s clear on our big goal.
- Then line up our micro-domino goals.
- Then let us start with the tiniest one. (Baby steps remember)
- Knock it over. (Enjoy watching it fall!)
Enjoy and use the release of energy as you knock over domino after domino.
