“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”
Starting is Hard
Starting is hard. Every time I sit down to make these posts, I have a hard time getting started. Making the graphic is the easier and more enjoyable part. I could make these graphics all day, everyday! But the writing is where I must stretch myself.
Doubts creep in, will I have anything worthwhile to say? Who am I to be saying such things in the first place?
But I make myself start typing, the first thing that comes into my head. And like the pond in the graphic, the one small ripple gains power and strength and makes more ripples. And somehow, the words come.
Starting anything that has an unknown factor is even harder. But the idea is the same. A step in the right direction to get the ball rolling usually leads to more steps and can break our inertia of fear and doubt.
You won’t be great to start, that is for sure. But like Zig said, you do have to start to be great.
Have a great week!
