Start where you are

If you want to get something done, then start it. That may sound obvious, yet all too often it is that first step that keeps getting put off for way too long.

If you can’t decide on where to start, just start somewhere, with the first thing that comes to mind. You’ll be much better able to come up with an effective plan once you get going and get a feel for what you’re doing.

Yes, you’ll probably make some mistakes and yes, there will certainly be challenges. So get moving and get busy dealing with them right away.

Once you start, the momentum begins to build. Once you start, you’ll find a workable way to finish.

Take the first step on a journey, and the next step comes a little more smoothly. As each step prepares the way for the next, your momentum begins to carry much of the load.

The way to get where you want to be is to start from where you are. Now is when you can surely begin to make your best possibilities come to life.
