Coasting can be a good thing to do at times. Other times, it may not be. There are right times for coasting: to give yourself a breather, when demands on you are lighter or when you’re on a roll and moving forward requires less effort than usual. Coasting can be harmful, however, when you have someplace to go and are slowing yourself down, when your motivation is low or when you are lost.
The downsides of coasting when you have someplace to go are that you are not getting where you want to be, your resistance can build and you can start falling behind.
Let yourself coast when it makes sense. Otherwise, keep your momentum and focus going so that you can get where you want to be.
