Just Do It
Are you wondering how you're ever going to handle a specific task or accomplish something big? Are you worried about how you can make that speech, ask someone out on a date, pass that course, raise those kids? Are you thinking too much about how to do anything? What's bothering you?
I don't know what it is, but one major problem that you may be facing right now is that you're thinking too much about it. Thinking too much about it means that you only extend the time the problem will stay. Think about it. They say, "the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."
The step is what kicks off the solution. Thinking about it initially could help, but if you overdo it, it delays the solution. You know you're overdoing it when you start feeling depressed and incapable of surmounting your challenges.
If you keep thinking about the 1000 steps involved, you'll end up worried and unable to do anything. Just focus on doing it by taking the little steps you can and stop worrying about everything involved. If you focus on taking one step at a time, before you know it 1, 2, 3, 4 , 100, 500, 800…1000 and you find your task accomplished.
Don't think too much about it, that's the mistake most of us make. Just do it! Because doing something makes the task easier one at a time. Get outside your head and do something to make some progress in anything you want to achieve.
If there's anything you trying to figure out how to do, just do it in any little way you can. If you're trying to perfect your speech for an audience, you don't worry about how you are going to speak to about 100,000 people. You start practicing how to speak to small groups of 10, 20, 100 people and keep increasing until you're able to comfortably speak to the target number.
Are you worried about how you're going to pass your courses? Start with the ones you can handle and find ways you can learn the tougher ones from teachers or course mates. No matter how big your problems are, there is always one step you can take to get closer to the solution. All you need is to stop over thinking about the problem and just do it! Take the step and with a little patience and time you will find yourself triumphant over the challenge.
Keep winning and share your thoughts.
