Just Start. Yes, it is that simple, just start! It will work out, but nothing happens if you don’t start. Taking that first action step builds momentum.
As you begin to take action you gain confidence in your ability to do the job, and you will be a little bit closer to completing your goal.
Don’t be attached to the outcome; be inspired by the possibilities.
When we are attached to the outcome, it can seem even more overwhelming if the job is a big one and will take a while to complete. It may seem like the job will never get finished, or maybe it is an ongoing task like laundry – the longer you put it off, the more there is to do.
Be inspired by possibilities: visualize how you will feel when the task is completed, feel the joy right now, be open to new possibilities and solutions.
Make simple plans each day. Decide which small step you want to take to make some progress today, no matter how small. Even very small steps accumulate over time and you will get results. Keep at it.
Lastly, be gentle and forgiving with yourself. You will not feel inspired if you beat yourself up. Life happens; we are all doing the best we can with what we have in each moment.
Keep taking those small steps and you will get things done. Enjoy and use the forward momentum to start on your next project.
