|You Only Have to Take the First Step|
The other night I was feeling uninspired. Kelly was enthusiastically working on the Tuesday Tips book, but there wasn't anything I felt like doing.
I asked her what I should do, and she told me to start working on my Tuesday Tips post to promote the book.
Ugh. I didn't FEEL like working on that! But I went into my office anyway. I sat down and told myself all I had to do was click "Add New Post" and that would count as having worked on it.
I created the new post and titled it. "Tuesday Tips: the Book." Then I promptly hopped on Facebook to avoid doing more work.
But the first thing I saw on my feed was a quote my friend Donna posted. A light went off in my head—the quote was a perfect way to begin my post.
I copied the quote into my blank post. And then suddenly I knew exactly what to write. The article flowed effortlessly from my fingertips. Within minutes, I had a new article and felt inspired.
Even though I didn't feel like working, I trusted the flow and took a single step in the direction I wanted to go. The easiest action I could take spiraled into the post effortlessly getting done ahead of time. (Read the aforementioned post, Tuesday Tips: the Book, here!)
Do you have a project you wish you were working on? Is there a miniscule step you can take right now, something as easy as clicking "Add New Post"? I dare you to do it, right now!
