Uncertainty often prevents people from getting started. Philosopher Lao Tzu said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Taking one small action, though often daunting, can propel you toward success. Procrastination is defined as putting off intentionally the doing of something that should be done. Though it’s challenging, small steps taken over time have the potential to grow exponentially.
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain
“The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.” – Theodore Roosevelt
Success is not an event, it is a process. Once you gain the awareness that you’d like to begin striving for more, you can make choices each day that aid in attaining your goals. It can be helpful to map out the circumstances that you need to create, to gain momentum. List action items that are as tangible as possible. This will assist in motivating you to continue forward. As your momentum builds, remain focused and accountable. Track your actions to gauge what has resulted in success and what we can learn from, or not repeat in the future.
