What’s the Next Step

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.  The secret of gettig started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”  Mark Twain

Sometimes, just getting started is the hardest part.  You might not know where to start or how much time the project is going to take so the unknown keeps you from starting.  Basically you procrastinate.  The next time you’re starring at a project and you don’t know where to begin, get out a piece of paper and write down every task that needs to be completed to finish the project.   Then look at the list of individual tasks and ask yourself “What’s the next step?”  When you finish a task, cross it off, and ask yourself the same question and keep going through this process until all the tasks have been completed and your project is finished.

Take one project you’ve been procrastinating on and ask yourself “what’s the next step?” and have a positively productive week!
