It is often said that the hardest part of any exercise routine is lacing up you shoes. When I was in college, often the hardest part of studying was opening up the book to the first page. Getting started is often much harder than any subsequent step. The truth is that failure for many is a result of never trying. We often get caught up in results and the steps to along the way and it paralyzes us from making the initial movement we need to take. We can help ourselves out tremendously by understanding that getting started will often be enough momentum to move us toward achieving our goals. It seems simple but the solution to procrastination is action..In order to run 3 miles today, I need to first step out the door.
