The Key to getting Anything done

My first year garden was exciting. I grew corn, pumpkins, zucchini, beets, radishes, tomatoes, bell peppers, egg plant, carrots, lettuce, jalapenos and cucumbers.  Not all of the plants grew, not all the plants flowered and grew food.  But it was an awesome experience that I've learned so much from and I'm glad I made that first step.

I like to plan, but the problem with my liking to plan is sometimes I spend so much time planning and  so much time not starting. I'll even talk myself out of doing something because I don't actually start. This year's garden is an awesome reminder of the key to getting anything done.

The key to getting anything done is to start doing something. It doesn't matter what goal you want to work toward if you don't take the first step toward what you want to do. You are never going to get it done.

Thinking is a start, but don't let it stop you. It can trap you in a vicious circle and your brain is good at causing failure by never trying. If all you are doing is thinking about it you will never get to where you want to be.

Make your next step be a physical action step. We are human beings we move around and have the ability to dig in the dirt, run around and fly up in the sky. We are creators and destroyers both of which require us to do something to be who we are.  What action will you take next to start something you've already wanted to do?
