Just Do It!

Always start small (and easy).

Just getting started can oftentimes feel like too much. This may be shocking but Adulting 101 wasn’t written in one long marathon writing session. It was over four months. A few hundred words each day. One hour each morning. One chapter per week.

When I first had the idea to write a book, I was immediately overwhelmed but knew this was something that I had always wanted to do. But where should I begin? I reached out to a mentor of mine and he recommended breaking up the entire book by chapter leading up to our manuscript deadline. Then each author wrote one chapter each week to accomplish this goal.

“Consistency is the mother of mastery” - Robin Sharma

Oftentimes, as an adult, you run across situations that seem overwhelming in the moment. The first thing you will want to do is take a step back and a deep breath. Then, set really small goals to help you finish the big project. And knock out the easiest one first! Think about a snowball. You want to start small and as it begins to roll and build momentum it continues to get bigger and faster. Most big projects are the exact same way.
