We tend to think we need to tackle big projects with big action to get big results. The funny thing is, that's not the best way to realize those big ambitions.
Why? Most of us get paralyzed at the thought of tackling something big, especially when we think we need to take heroic action to do so. Our self-critic jumps in and it can show up as doubt, fear, or procrastination — or a nasty combination of those self-sabotaging reactions.
The key to overcoming these obstacles is counterintuitive. Whether you have a modest, moderate, or huge idea to tackle, or project to do, or ambition to realize, start with taking small steps.
And, start taking those steps even if you don't feel you can do them well. It's taking action that matters, and imperfect action is encouraged!
Then, after you take the first step, take another. Be consistent and keep going. It's the consistent small steps that result in tremendous accomplishments.
Try it! I predict you will amaze yourself.
