The Secret To Getting Ahead

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

~ Sally Berger

Coaching Tip For The Week:

How much time do you spend thinking, dreaming, and planning to do something?

If you’re anything like me, you can invest so much mental energy in the planning phase that you feel like you’ve already accomplished the goal or task! 😉
This reminds me of an Eva Young quote I posted on Twitter last week: “To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing.” 

At some point we must tell ourselves to move from thinking into doing, remembering that we can refine and course-correct as we go.

Quick: What’s your most important, exciting goal or dream? This week, take one action per day towards it. 

Give yourself permission to act even if you’re not fully ready or it’s not totally planned out yet, and give yourself grace if your action is less than perfect. 

Celebrate the act of taking the action.
