How to Master the Art of Starting 

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

– Lao Tzu

There was this friend of mine who some years ago decided to organise his life. He got a digital Calendar, a goal tracker and some other goal setting/ scheduling tools. 

He was determined to hit his target or so it seemed. But days went by and so did weeks and months without him achieving any of those goals.

“What was wrong?” I kept asking.

After some time, I found out that he barely got started towards any of those goals. Alas, he was bad at starting.

The thing is: like this my friend, many people fail to hit their targets because they never get started.

To master the art of starting you simply need to start. There are no two ways about it. Just start!

The Art of Starting 

Starting is the problem stopping many from doing what they are capable of because the only way to doing anything is by starting then investing conscious concerted effort towards its actualisation.

After you start, the speed at which you work doesn’t matter. Remember, little by little, the bird builds its nest.

Ending Notes 

There is no other way to things done apart from literally doing them. So

If you want to be a:

Writer – write

Painter – paint

Singer – sing

Identity follows activity. You have to do something to be someone. You do something to get another. That’s how it works.

So go ahead and get started at your tasks today!
