Feeling overwhelmed by a large project? Struggling to get started? Many of us look at a project and feel so overwhelmed that we can’t figure out how to get started. With a large task or project, the question that we often fail to ask is:
“What is the very next step I need to take?”
By not asking this question, we fail to get started. The very next step you need to take might be to:
- Schedule 30 minutes to brainstorm possibilities
- Pick up the phone and make a call
- Spend 15 minutes cleaning out one drawer
- Write 2 paragraphs
- Clear ten emails out of your box
We all feel overwhelmed at times. But instead of focusing on how big a project is and failing to do anything, take 5 minutes right now and ask yourself the question “What is the very next step I need to take?”
