Let’s say I wanted to reorganize my craft space. Create three new online classes. Make leap from Girl Scout parent to leader. Train to run a 5k in three months with a respectable time. Re-paint and floor abovementioned craft space. Clean out my closet. Drop 20lbs. Try a new recipe every week. Train a puppy. Plan an epic Disney World vacation. Read a ton of novels. Do a weekly youtube video series. Get back to blogging 5 days a week.
Let’s say that this was a very real list and not random things I pulled out of my head.
Believe it or not, this would be very simple.
I didn’t say easy. I said simple. There is and always be a huge difference between those two words when it comes to taking action.
Start with one tiny step. For example yesterday I:
- walked for 40minutes
- had a smoothie in lieu of lunch
- cleaned off my desk
- practiced sit and stay with the puppy
- wrote this blog post
- emailed all the potential contributors to my next class with details
- purchased the base patches needed for the girls new vests (girl scouts)
Oh and plenty more stuff I assure you. But my point is these were small, insignificant acts. They weren’t big sweeping gestures or epic quests. I did small seemingly unimportant things that will start adding up. These little steps, little steps like them every day, every week? That will be how I move personal mountains. By not opting to sit all day in front of the TV or trying to do big flashy things that don’t actually get the work done. I won’t get hyper focused on something like picking the perfect paint color and spend three days on that. Instead I will pick one small drawer and sort it. I will get up and go do interval training. I will move in a positive direction.
One little step at a time. That’s how things get done around here.
