Have you noticed that people often complicate their lives! If something is easy, we simply put it off to another time saying that either it will not take any time and therefore, it is not worth planning for, or, it’s so simple that we can do it anytime! When we call things "easy", we sometimes procrastinate and we end up not doing even the simple things.
Curiously enough, this also applies to the things we call "hard". We set up barriers before we even begin! One of the basic facts of life is if you don't start, you don't stand a chance of getting there! Sounds so simple...right? Yet, there is an expression that may help you get started on whatever you want to create. "If you're failing to plan...you're planning to fail"!
Others may refer to this as the paralysis of analysis. It's so easy to sit in the comfort zones of our lives and rationalize about what we could or should do if we had more information or if the circumstances were just different. If you don't take the first step, you'll never take the second!
Make a “to do” list at the beginning or the end of your day. Write down the simplest of things and check it off when completed. This action step will train your mind to accomplish whatever you write down!
Try it...See what happens!
