W.I.N. Wednesday: Start
It is January 3. You have come down from the high of the excitement of a new year and the inspiration that comes from imagining the possibilities for 2018.
You have come up from the low of too much food and alcohol and too little sleep on New Years Eve.
If you are a Georgia Bulldogs fan you are still on the high after they won the Rose Bowl in double overtime and if you are an Alabama Crimson Tide fan you are still on a high after they beat Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. Those highs will last at least until the National Championship game January 8.
New Years is always a time for resolutions and while it is only day 3 of 2018 many people have already broken or given up on some of their 2018 New Year’s Resolutions.
Relax. Take a breath. It is only January 3. You still have 362 days left to achieve significance in 2018.
Here are two quotes and a question to keep in mind as you move into, and through this year.
“Start small, start now. This is much better than, ‘start big, start later’."
The key is to start, to take action. It is too easy to get caught up in the excuse of, “I will start tomorrow. I am just not in the mood / too tired / too busy today.” Start small. Start now.
“Where might the smallest change make the biggest difference?"
Dr. Robert Cooper
Many times we get frustrated and give up because we are trying to change the world, or at least our world, all at once. Pick that one small change, the one that if you committed to that action it would have a ripple effect into many other areas of your life and kick start you on the road to success. Start small. Start now.
"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can."
We often delay by using the excuse that we just need that one more piece of information or one more ________ (fill in the blank), and once we have that we will get started. Months later we are still waiting for something and have done nothing to move our lives, and ourselves forward. Start small. Start now.
What’s Important Now? Start where you are at, with what you have. Choose the smallest change that will make the biggest difference and start now.
