Do One Thing at a Time

Take the opportunity today to do one thing at a time.


After a dinner party you look at the clearing up and think: ‘God where do I start?’ But you start. You start somewhere, anywhere and you keep going until a couple of hours later everything is clear and tidy again.


Overwhelm is a huge influencer of inertia. Not knowing where to start can hinder us from starting at all. It’s tempting to think that all the great people of history that ever achieved anything had it all figured out. Well they didn’t! Most of them anyhow, were just like you and me except they got past their overwhelm. They just started and then figured out the next step, then the next. Sometimes it became apparent they took the wrong step so they went back and started again. That’s not a waste of time.


Not starting, procrastinating – that’s a waste of time.


So get going, start, get moving.


Once the train is in motion it takes less and less energy to keep it in motion.
