A One Step Plan For Success

one step successStep one. Take the first step. That is all.

Don’t worry about where, direction isn’t all that important. Size does matter, but bigger is not better. A small step is more than sufficient. Forget about the destination; focus on physics instead.

Wait, physics?

Yes. More specifically, master Newton’s First Law of Motion: an object at rest will remain at rest, but an object in motion keeps on going. It’s the magic of momentum. The trick to getting things done is to build up so much momentum that nothing can stop you.

 

When World’s Collide

It’s not a groundbreaking revelation, but it’s still incredibly difficult to accept and apply this rationale. A fact that’s especially true for creative types and entrepreneurs. As a maker and a doer we exist in a constant state of ideation. Brainstorming is fun and the possibilities are endless. On the other hand, execution is a total buzz kill. The former is more pleasing, the later more tedious. But when these two world’s collide, we have to mesh limitless possibilities with logic to actually create something. That’s where the first step comes in.

Building Momentum

1. “The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas.” In the long run, the more ideas you have, the better off you’ll be.

2. But, you have to attach ideas and take action;

An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only

as an idea.

3. So create a better, more productive workflow for making things happen. Make a to-do list that actually works. Then, get in the habit of waking up earlier and working everyday, no matter what.

4. Armed with these methods for making ideas happen, you can build and harness momentum. You can avoid creative burnout while spotting and seizing every opportunity you encounter.

5. With momentum on your side you can stop wishing, because you’ll have a force of energy behind you that will carry you through until the work is done. Then it’s onto the next idea, because there’s always another project waiting in the wings.
