Sometimes getting started is more than half the battle.
Next time you don’t feel like undergoing the task at hand, just get started.
Just dive in head first and start swimming.
People always ask me, how do you wake up at 4:30 AM every day?
The truth is, I hear my alarm and have that same gut feeling you do. Thank God I’m alive and have another opportunity at this game called life.
That is what you think when you first hear your morning alarm ring, right?
If not, it should be. Someone once told me, if you think waking up early is hard. Try not waking up.
Okay. point taken.
So next time you really don’t want to wake up early, or go to the gym, or write that paper, or make that phone call, etc, etc etc. Just start.
It does not have to be perfect, or even pretty to get started. But you have to get started.
So just start somewhere, you can always go back and fine tune later on. But for now, just get your feet on the floor, and words on paper. The rest will come with time.
Even the longest journey begins with taking the first step.
