Don’t Think Just Do It
Jump out of bed with my stiff back, walk carefully to the bathroom as I diagnose myself with a tender left heel. Walk out the door, make it to the front fence and turn back like I do every Sunday and walk back in the house to check I turned off my heater. I decide not to stretch before I run even though I know I should. I use my dog as an excuse. She is probably happy I left, now she can continue sleeping.
Today I would like you to imagine that you are going to build a patio and you have all the bricks you need, and maybe even a few spare ones. You told your friends about your project and they are delighted and excited to stop by to see what is going on, and you all love to think about the great parties you will have on this patio once it is built. They love the bricks you have chosen and many of them ask if they could have just one as a sample to take and use for a project of their own. You are a generous person, and you love to share. All of a sudden, though, you realize that you have a much smaller pile of bricks to work with.
If you ask me one most powerful thing I can tell you to achieve anything in life, it is. Whatever it is you want to achieve, whatever is that one thing you want to do, Just start on it now. Start it in the smallest way possible. The key is when you start, all resources, time, skills will find their way to you. When you start you will definitely reach some milestone in your journey. And every milestone will give you new energy, show you new ways to achieve the next one.
Embrace the action habit!
It surrounds your mind with doubt and questions, filling it with fear like some sort of awful kettle. The longer you think about something, the more it boils, getting louder and louder and louder in your mind until the whistling of the steam becomes a screech.
When you spend too much time picturing what a project is going to be like, too much time thinking about how awesome it will be… and too little time actually making the thing, you make no progress. Many people get excited about a lot of ideas. But unfortunately they easily begin pushing them further back on their to-do lists, if not completely disregarding them as being unfeasibleor unreaslistic. Greater percentage of them will never be done. And you will most likely not think about a lot of them again.
