What Are Your Action Steps?

action stepsHow often do you get discouraged because you haven’t done anything yet?

What were your goals this past week? Any movement on those?

Don’t lose heart!  It’s ok to fall.  That’s part of learning how to walk.  We all fall, but it only becomes a permanent condition when we choose to not get back up.

When my sons were all learning how to walk, none of them did it right on the first try. My oldest son, Benjamin, was a late walker, he waited until 15 months to venture into biped mode.

Now he runs a mile in 7 minutes.

Why? Because he chose to get back up. He chose to try again.

Now is the time to get back up and focus on small doable action steps.

Want to hear mine?

1. Write 15 minutes every morning.  Yes, this means getting up 15-20  minutes earlier than I want to.  But isn’t your writing, business, vision worth the extra 15-20 minutes?  If it’s not, then you don’t have a big enough dream.

2. Write a blog post 2 times a week for the next 8 weeks while I’m in Rome (update: this was modified down to 1 blog post).

3. Start with 10 push-ups 3 times a week.  See the 100 push up challenge (http://www.hundredpushups.com).
