The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

~ Mark Twain

Sometimes we put off things that we want – decluttering our house, or clearing out our closet, or starting our diet and exercise program, or beginning our novel.

We can’t imagine how we could ever deal with so much clutter.

We look at our wardrobes and feel overwhelmed.

We don’t know how to choose the perfect weight-loss program for us.

We have no idea how to write something so enormous.

So we do nothing.

I’ve been there. We all have.

But we don’t need to have a perfect plan before we begin.

In fact – we can’t. It’s only by starting, by making mistakes and getting feedback, by tweaking and revising, that we discover what works, that we work out how to do it.

So the secret is not to have a perfect plan.

The secret is not to analyze, discuss, or lament our procrastination.

The secret is to begin.

Whatever you want to have, do, be, or change, you need to choose a first step – and get started.

What will you start today?
