I’m reading “Poke the Box” by Seth Godin right now and although short (around 80 pages), it is filled with valuable insight.
As Seth puts it, it is a “manifesto about starting”, not just “thinking about it” but
leaping, commiting and making something happen
which got me thinking how often do people get stuck at the starting line? How often do we become our own barriers to starting? Or we put off launching something because it is not “perfect” yet? We come up with all these things we think we need to do before we actually start, get overwhelmed and then never end up doing anything.
A year from now you will wish you had started today -Karen Lamb
Starting is important. Your first blog post won’t be nearly as good as your 100th but you need to go through that process to get better and improve.
It’s normal to feel overwhelmed when you first start something new but chances are you can break down your ideas into smaller pieces and chip away at them bit by bit.
The world is waiting for you! Get unstuck . Stop watching and start doing.
I’d love to hear what you’re starting and working on in the comments below!
