Just Start

I think that one of the unintended consequences of information overload is that we tend to think that we have to get all our ducks in a row, all our “t”s crossed and our “i”s dotted, and every other preparedness cliché in order before we can start something.

Don’t buy into it. The people who get things done are the ones who take massive determined action. Massive determined, well thought out action is nice, but not a prerequisite.

Goethe said, “Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it.” He was right. More than likely, a year from now you’ll wish you had started something.

Don’t worry about how to get from A to Z. Head for B and C will reveal itself. Take a small step. One step leads to another and then another. Don’t even worry about how it’s all gonna work out. It will. Just start.
