When starting new challenges, it's all to easy to become obsessed with finishing. Some of us tend to lend more of our time worrying about the end point rather than the journey itself. Equally important is the beginning. I have to admit, it's often a challenge putting that first foot forward when it comes to beginning a new goal or project. It may be fatigue, or lack of will, or you just flat out don't want to do it, but having the courage and determination to cross that starting line is critical. Best of days to all.
While sipping the coffee this morning and thinking about my list of projects and to do’s, I thought about the importance of seeing my little ideas to fruition. There was a time in my life when I didn’t realize how content I’d become with just thinking about ideas (and not doing a damn thing about them)…as if those ideas would just magically materialize out of thin air like some Harry Potter fantasy. There are no magic wands…there’s just work. Effort. Consistency. It’s easy to want to do something…it’s more of a challenge to formulate a plan. A dream is just a pretty picture trapped in our heads until we take the time to mold them into reality. Let’s get to work.
