If you can't start where you are, where then?


2005-2-16

A very common problem I struggled long to overcome - with partial success - is the notion of 'I need THIS before I can do THAT'.

I don't know if you can identify with that, so maybe I'll give some examples:

All these things are commonly either hard to find, expensive or take time. In my perception, I can't do B before I have A. And as A is hard to come by, I don't start achieving B.

But they all have one thing in common: they are NOT dealstoppers!

Don't let your - percieved - prerequisites stop you!

One mantra I repeated to myself for a long time is this: "If I really want to do this, there are ways to do it RIGHT HERE AND NOW" - Everything else might just be an excuse...

Maybe another good way to break out of this kind of 'motivation block': Think "What part of the plan can be worked on NOW and HERE?" instead of "What do I need before I start?"

Thing is, if you don't start where you are, how are you going to get anywhere at all?
