Here's a tip for you that's related to my last post (4 Easy Ways to Start Taking Action in Your Life):
One of the best ways I've found to get things done, especially big things (big always being relative to what you're comparing it to), is to start with a small bite-sized chunk rather than attempting the often-overwhelming whole at once.
For example, did you ever have a room of your home that somehow, over time, turned into an absolute disaster area? Your garage maybe? What happened when it finally got to you and you set aside the time to straighten it out?
Well, if you're anything like me, when the day came to do it you stood there staring at the overwhelming pigpen and quickly reached the conclusion that it'd best be done another day.
Whereas, if you'd decided instead, at set time, rather than attempting the whole at once, to put or throw away just one small thing, what do you think would happen?
Well, again, if you're anything like me, odds are, you'd find the putting or throwing away of the one small thing rather easy and enjoyable, so you'd go back and do another, and then another, and then another, and then another, and, before you knew it, the whole would be done in what seemed like no time flat, and it didn't feel like such a big deal after all.
Same principle applies to any project or task you want to tackle, especially one you've been putting off, because every single time you think about it you immediately go into overwhelm...
Take one small chunk of it, something simple, preferably something that can be done in just a few minutes or less, and do it. Then do another and then another. Pretty soon, you'll find the momentum you've developed will have you plowing through the project or task faster than you ever thought possible.
It's sort of like the old kid's joke...
How do you eat an elephant?
The answer being...
One bite at a time!
And it all starts with the first bite; however small it may be.
