Take the Next Step

When you are beginning a new project, you need to learn a  lot.  There is likely new terminology, procedures, new relationships, and more.  You will also need to plan.  What are the next steps?  What might they look like?  How many steps will there be?  Are there books I should read or videos I should watch?  It can be overwhelming.

The problem with many projects in life is they get “stuck” in the learning phase.  We don’t know what we don’t know.  And as we learn more about the project we can become paralyzed with the fear that we don’t know enough.

At some point you need to take action.

In my experience, most endeavors don’t fail because the participants don’t know enough.  They fail because those involved don’t take enough action.  Most of your goals will take more activity than you anticipate…so the sooner you start the better.  The fact is, if you take the wrong action, you will learn quickly.  Then, with that new knowledge, you can take new action to move the project in the right direction.

That’s right.  You will actually learn more (in many cases) by taking action.

So if you are stuck on a new project because you feel you are not ready, get over yourself.

Take the next right step.  Then navigate the next step from there.
