Do one thing

Ever have one of those days when you just can’t seem to get things started? You sit there feeling overwhelmed by the mental to-do list. And yet, for some reason, you can’t move. You feel stuck. Paralyzed.

Here’s a thought. Do one thing. Just one thing. Anything.

Pick off the smallest, easiest item on your to-do list and act on it. Keep it small. Keep it light. Allow yourself to do it poorly. It doesn’t matter. The key is to do it.

Done? Good. Take a brief moment to congratulate yourself.

Now pick the next item. Act on it.

Feels good, doesn’t it?  You’re moving. Momentum is building. Ride it. Enjoy it. Keep going.

Before you know it, you’re back in full swing and moving ahead. All it took was that one small step of picking one item and doing it.

What will you do now to get things moving? Do it.
