We can sometimes get caught up and even overwhelmed in trying to jump from where we are to where we want to be.
Kinda an all or nothing situation which can lead to overwhelm.
For e.g. I recently had fun with a 100 push - up challenge in under 5 minutes. I did not try and do them all in one go.
Instead I clocked them in batches, focusing only on one at a time...one action at a time.
Quite simply I enjoyed the process.
Here’s a similar view adapted from author Holiday…
“Don’t think about winning the … Championship... Think about what you need to do in this drill, on this play, in this moment. That’s the process: Let’s think about what we can do today, the task at hand.”
You got a qualification you want to get?
You got a milestone you want to achieve?
You want to achieve a big goal?
Now focus on the process, what you can do today, the ‘task at hand’.
Start super small e.g. picking up a paper and pen or simply sitting in a conducive space to start.
The momentum will come.
p.s. if you need to start and re-start over and over again that's totally alright. That shows you are not giving up.
