Just get started

Lots of times we overthink to get started on a project, a task or an assignment. We think of all the challenges ahead of us. With each thought, the project looks bigger, daunting and unattainable. Until you get started.

When I was first contemplating of starting my own website (this one), I had an idea about it. I grabbed a white piece of paper and started sketching out how I wanted the website to look like. Within a few minutes, I had the first blueprint of this website. After a few months working on it, here I am-writing blogs on my website. The idea has now become the reality.

For me, starting is the hardest part of any project. Let’s say you want to write an article or run a 10K in the near future. You don’t plan on finishing the whole article at the first take or run the 10K in your first practice. You take it one step at a time. Once you type a few words on the Google doc for the article, you are on your way. Once you run a few miles, you are on your way.

So if you are thinking of accomplishing anything in life, take the most important step-the first one.
