“To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing.” – Eva Young

Have you ever made the mistake of staring at all the things on your desk all at once as opossed to looking at each thing individually. When we do that, we pretty much kiss progress good-bye along with our sanity.

I still sometimes fall into this trap, then I have spend even more energy mentally scrambling to crawl out of it.

As I’ve said before, I’m a web designer/graphic artist, have 12 blogs, 15 websites, run a web hosting business, and a web publishing business. On top of that (and of course, more important than that), I have a house, family, and cats to care for – as well as hobbies like cooking, writing, reading, dreamology, yoga, movies and tennis.

So, like most people, I stay busy. Sometimes it can get overwhelming, because there are times when I stare at all the steps that need to be climbed, rather than each individual step. When I do that, I paralyze myself, because no steps are taken, literally. I’ve found that the only remedy in the world is to just make a move: take that first step. Then, your one step closer. Then you take another one. Another step closer. It seems that you gain momentum with each step taken and, before you know it, what started out as “overwhelming” becomes “invigorating.” You end up finding strength that you’d forgotten you had. That comes in handy for the rest of the climb!

The more we climb, the more we can climb because the more we do, the more we can do.

Make each step count double,

  • Thanks for the encouraging word! It’s always a great way to start off the morning – when someone has something nice to say…..coffee and niceness: It’s gonna be a good day. 🙂
