The most important step, is the next one!

  

This is it.  You’ve decided to live a life full of awesome. You are going to track down every one of those Dragons on your list and make them rue the day you got them in your sights.

And yet….

It’s been a week, a month, a year or a decade since you lined up that first bastard, and you’re no closer to mounting his head on your wall.  And, his mocking laughter has become a daily reminder of the complete lack of progress.

You’ve made good plans that came to nothing.  You’ve had bad ideas that were probably better left alone.  You’ve even had plans so ugly that had you told anyone they would have slapped you.

What now?

Time to try something new. There is no “best step” or “most important” step. What there are, are a whole lot of next steps. Do enough next steps, and soon you’ll reach a “last step”!

It doesn’t matter what you do. All that matters is that you do something. Start with something little, something you can do now. And then tomorrow, do the next step. And the day after that, the next step.  Before you realize it, you’ll have taken so many steps that the dragon will be right in front you, and he won’t be laughing anymore.

Go now. Get one step closer. And when you’ve done that, come tell me about it in the comments.
