Tackle The Hard Things First!


I’m writing this post because something dawned upon me. The only way to tackle your fears is to take action! Nike figured it out when they coined the slogan, “Just Do It!” Sometimes you just have to get up and get started.

Stop Making Excuses and Just Get Started

Excuses are so easy to make. “I’m tired.” or “I don’t want to.” or “I have better things to do.”  What so many people fail to realize is that had they just started the task at hand, getting it done wouldn’t have been so hard.

Break Large Tasks Into Smaller Ones

Look at the things you have to do and break them down into sizable chunks that you can chew on. Running a marathon does not happen over night. It takes a step by step approach. In fact, I would encourage baby steps!

Quit Avoiding It!

Forbes posted a great article about 6 things you should quit doing to become successful and the last point really stuck a bell. Everyone is busy and everyone has activities, people, events that will distract them from the task at hand. To avoid this, tackle the task or action item directly. Just do it!

Get Started. Get Started. Seriously, Go Get Started!

So maybe you are reading the blog post because you wanted to avoid something. Perhaps you saw it on my Twitter Account or through a friend’s post. But that is exactly what’s stopping you. Go log out of all of your social media accounts and jump to the task. If you need some good books, “Art of Start” is a good one. Now that I’m done writing this blog post, I’m going to go get started on another task! Cheers!
