Step 2: Start acting.
You always hear people saying how their diet starts Monday, how next week ____ is going to happen. That ‘next time’ it will be different.
But the real key, the kicker and the hard part, is that it has to start now. Immediately.
This might mean staying up an extra hour or two to clear out your email inbox (check!)
It might mean stopping for five minutes to clean up the mess on the table from a month ago (check!)
It might mean that you don’t scrapbook unless you are really feeling the story, no matter what (check, and check!)
Don’t think about the big plan. The overall scheme of things. Don’t look at the whole list. Just take one little item and give it a check. Then look at the next little item.
The mistake people (myself included!) make is trying to look at the whole grand plan. It is more productive, more successful to simply look at one tiny thing at a time. The steps will lead you to a good place- if only you take them.
Until next time…
