He who considers too much will perform little. ~ Schiller
I don’t know about you, but if you’re like me, I enjoy the planning part a whole lot more than the actual doing part when it comes to things like health and fitness or household organization resolutions. If left to my own devices, I would spend my entire life daydreaming and planning my fabulous Technicolor life.
But if I don’t start actually doing anything, then that fabulous life I’m envisioning in my head won’t come to pass. And then I get frustrated with myself when I realize that my “plan of action” is the same one I’ve had for ten years.
I remember hearing somewhere that as long as it’s still a plan, a daydream, we won’t be confronted with failure. But, isn’t the lack of action in and of itself failure? Let’s start by taking the baby steps in our plans. Before we know it, our resolutions will have come to fruition!
My baby step for today was getting out of my office during lunch and writing this post while sitting in the campus library.
What one thing are you going to do today toward your goal?
