Part Three of Series that begins with Setting Your Intent and Deciding What You’re Not Going To Do
If we never started something knowing 100% how we were going to get it done, humankind wouldn’t have reached the moon, mapped the human genome, or climbed Mount Everest. Sometime the best way to do something is to just start and figure it out along the way. You might not be able to figure out the entire puzzle, but you can usually figure out where the next piece fits.
If you know what needs to be done next, even if that means ‘figure out how to do that part”, then that’s enough to get started.
Here’s the key: When I say “next step”, I mean what physical, tangible, visible action are you going to take? Are you going to pick up the phone and call somebody, or sketch out the design, or visualize what the deliverable / goal / accomplishment looks like and commit that paper? Are you going to cut, shape, fabricate a component? It’s shape model? A part? Are you going to have the contract reviewed by a lawyer, sign it, and hang your shingle out? Start a web page, order stock, arrange a photographer?
What are you going to do? What is the thing that is going to happen?
Here’s an exercise of for extra points: List your three biggest, or most important, projects. Then list the next step for each.
