Success tip for the reluctant: Start with just one step
You can’t procrastinate your way to success, but sometimes you just don’t feel like tackling that big project in front of you no matter how awesome you expect it to be. Instead of taking an extended coffee break, though, try this technique: Do just one step.
Commit to just part of the project: Gathering some preliminary information, calling one person, or figuring out what tools you need. Once you’ve completed that task, give yourself permission to do something else. In many cases, you once you’ve begun you’ll be more inclined to keep on working. Even if you don’t, you’ll be one step closer to success when you come back to the task later.
