“An object at rest tends to stay at rest. An object in motion tends to stay in motion.” – Newton
There is a large difference between understanding what we need to do, and actually doing it.
Most people don’t have an issue knowing what they need to do.
They make goals, lists, priorities, to-dos.
But despite it being buttoned up on paper – the separation lies in execution.
Far too often, it’s the start that we fail at. It’s the first step, the first push, to begin the process. The challenge is hardly ever to align the goals or to make the next list of actionables. It’s to gather the energy to actually go.
There will be a voice in our head, that says – there’s time to do this tomorrow. That there’s other things that are “more urgent” to take care of today. Things are just too tight right now.
The first step will be to silence that voice. And to just start. Because we recognize that whatever the goal is – the search of a new job, chasing a new PR, a significant other… we just need to start. For “an object in motion, tends to stay in motion”.
