Always be up to something…

I have been doing lots of writing and creating lately… I must have more time to spare!

And in doing so I have noticed, I am getting quicker at a few things. Typing. Reading. Conversation. Information recall. And what has been most surprising is that I am getting better at starting.

There is less procrastination and general dillydallying and faffing. You can think about doing something, and just go do it.

But why is that?

My theory is, that the more things you start, the better at starting you get. I have a few projects on the go right now. Not so much that I am overwhelmed, just enough to keep me interested. And those things are things I am passionate about. I get excited to start them and keep working at them. It is very fulfilling and the better I get, the more I want to do.

And by testing different ways of working, you’ll not be finding what works. No, it is to keep you in the discomfort zone.

And by getting comfortable with the discomfort zone, makes it easier to start.

Sure, that’s just the beginning and there will be other speed bumps along the way. And that’s ok, because at least you know you can start and that’s 20% of the battle.

Now it’s your turn…
