One step

Feeling overwhelmed by a project?

Start exercising?
Clear a counter?
Organize your desk?
Park in the garage?

Forget the big picture.
​Narrow your focus.
Think of one step you can do today to move you forward.

Walk to the corner.
Throw away the trash on the counter.
Put all the pens and pencils in one container.
Donate the sports equipment you’re not using.

Often just starting is the most daunting step.
The goal for today isn’t completion.
The focus of today is one step; moving you in the direction you want to go.

Tomorrow, another step.
Let momentum and progress carry you forward.

What one thing can you do today,
with the energy you have,
and the time that’s available,
to begin the project?
Take that step.
