The Secret of Getting Ahead is Getting Started!

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one."  --- Mark Twain

 It is easy to sit and daydream and get lost in all of the things that we want to accomplish. Unfortunately, quite often, people get lost in the fantasy and never get started on the path of action towards their goals.

It is very daunting to move beyond the daydreaming stage, and begin taking action. The amount of options and steps that can be required to turn those daydreams into reality can be overwhelming. So overwhelming in fact, that many people never get started.

Don't be one of those people who look back forty years from now regretting the things you never did. You can begin working towards any goal that you have by making that goal workable for you. The easiest way to do this is to break down the goal into a series of smaller, more doable steps, and begin with that first small step.

Once you have completed that first step, then take another small step and complete it...rinse and repeat. Not only does this make it easier to achieve your goal, but it also makes the journey much more enjoyable and much less stressful.

So begin today with that single small step and don't look back!
