Just Get Started!

The biggest hurdle is is our doubts

Have you ever hesitated to start a project that you really would like to do?  Whether it’s losing weight, learning a language or maybe starting your own business, we often get overwhelmed by the enormity of the project and end up procrastinating.

Focus on the individual tasks

By breaking your mission into interim steps or goals, you will often realize that each one of these steps is attainable. Don’t worry about the length of the task list. Focus only on an individual task, the next task. And once you get started, the achievements of each step along the way will give you a sense of accomplishment and an increasing sense of confidence and motivation.

Start with the easy Steps

While some projects require steps to be performed sequentially, there will often be many steps which are not dependent on others. It is best to begin with easy steps that are quickly attainable. This will increase the likelihood of quick results and reduce risk of early discouragement. More difficult steps can be tackled later on once you are on a role.

Celebrate Successes along the way

You don’t have to wait until the project is complete to celebrate success. Completion of each step along the way is an achievement. Feel good about moving closer to your goal. Celebrating accomplishment along the way will help motivate you through the more difficult steps still to come.

Don’t Put it Off!

So why keep going over it in you head. Why only thinking about where you want to be? Don’t let your doubts delay your dreams. Just Get started!

Let me know how it goes.
