Sunday Quote: Secret of Success

Standard

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.  –Mark Twain

I can apply this to so many areas of my life. How many projects do I have lying around? How long has it been since I worked toward getting my novel published? How long will I live with clutter?

So many things seem overwhelming. When I get overwhelmed, I hide and numb out with video games or other things like that. The thing is, that just makes the problem bigger, making me more overwhelmed and thus, I want to check out even more.

What this quote reminds me of is that all I have to do is GET STARTED! I don’t need to think about the finish line. That will take care of itself. If I don’t START, I will never finish.

With the New Year, I pledge to look at what I need to start doing (and do it). What do you need to get started with?
