For most of us, when we decide we want to make a change, try something new, transform our ways and set our sights on brand new goals, we talk about it. We talk about it to just about anyone who will listen. We talk about how bad we want it. How it’s going to make us so much better. How great it will be when we do it. “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” Mark Twain”
The simple stupid secret to getting where you want to go is that it’s never too soon to begin. So you some take action and you don’t get caught up in the results. You do a little bit of it. You start. You do one small step each hour, day, week . .. to get to the goal, the finish line. Whatever that line looks like. 15 pounds off, a new business idea, writing that damn book or maybe dating again. You begin each day with a motivated step in that direction. And you don’t make it daunting. If you are losing weight, make sure there is healthy food in the fridge and a gym near by; if you are writing a book, get up earlier and start writing your thoughts down; gather the tools you need for success.
What is it going to take to get to the finish line? A lot. A lot of repeated moments of practice, success, planning and failing.
Don’t let your desire for perfection, become your procrastination. Get messy with it. Watch those micro-decisions you make throughout the day.
