Knowing what to do, knowing how to do it, and actually executing on what you want to do are three entirely different things.
Is it important to know what to do? Absolutely!
Do we need to know how to do it? Of course!
Is executing on what it is you really want to do the same thing? Definitely not!
Sometimes we get too caught up in the figuring it out stages and forget that we can have all the best intentions, all the best ideas, and all the best know-how, but without taking action and actually working on the goal, it is all just a mental game.
Even if you are not quite 100% clear on the what, even if you’re not quite how to go about doing it, if you start working on it, if you start by just doing the very first step that’s right in front of you, the what and how will be clearer over time.
Just taking that first step, writing the first paragraph, creating the first outline, making the first phone call, hammering the first nail, planting the first seed, seeing that first client, just doing the very basic first step is the most important action you can take.
Because then the next step becomes obvious. We’ve broken the barrier to begin and overcome inertia. Movement created momentum, and momentum creates our destiny!
