Can't Get Started? Your Dreams Might Have Got A Bit Too Big
Mel Robbins has a useful piece of advice on the age-old problem of procrastination which is well worth considering.
We get overwhelmed, as there is far too much riding on this and way too much to think about - so it's not surprising that that is all we end up doing.
Instead, she says, we need to scale it down - radically. Recognize Rome was not built in a day. Be realistic.
Second, we need to adopt a mentality of "I'm just going to try this out for size" and be willing to leave it there. Accept this thing might not go anywhere and make your peace with that.
But crucially, the key thing to remember about this Grand Plan is we might not even like it when we actually do it.
So before we waste any more time avoiding beginning this life-long goal we've given ourselves, we need to see if we have actually chosen the right one. And all that might take is a week - not a life-time - which is a lot easier to get our heads around.
