How many of us have done this. I have done it so many times I can’t even count. I come up with a new plan, a new workout schedule, study schedule, and get all excited about it. I run through all the details and actions in my head and plan it all out. I can’t wait to get started. And yet, I never do.  Even though I am so excited to start whatever it is I am thinking about, I never do.

If you also have this problem, then I have a simple trick that might work for you. Take the first step now! The first step doesn’t have to be huge. It just has to be enough to get your feet moving in the right direction. If you want to join a new club, it may be the first phone call just to get information. A new workout program could start with you doing your first 5 minute walk right now.  It can even be something as simple as writing down the thing you are thinking about and how you will accomplish it. I often do this if I am thinking about something before I go to sleep. If I write it down there is a good chance I will start and finish it. If I don’t I will usually forget by morning.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Just taking that first step sets the wheels turning and the steps after that just seem to fall into place.

Get started now!

Think of that one thing you have wanted to start or need to get done and write it down how to get started.

I would love to hear how this method works for you and what methods you use that you have found helpful.
