It’s never easy to start something new and in the age of distraction it’s easier than ever before to avoid the very things that are likely to lead us to growth.

Fear or failure is a powerful thing.

Often the idea of not getting things “right” the first time means we just don’t bother to ever try.

Fortunately though, there are steps you can take to make sure all your important tasks and projects get off the ground.

Here’s 3 steps to help you put procrastination on hold and start something new.

Set aside the time

Begin by making time in your schedule, this will help you transform your ideas into action.

Remember, the goal isn’t how quickly you get this done.

Rather it’s making a commitment to form a new habit that means you take action towards the things that matter most to you.

When you’re time poor, it’s crucial to carve out the time to get started, either on paper or in your calendar – otherwise it will never happen.

Remove all distractions

Stick your phone on airplane mode, or take it out of the room.

Also be brutal and  remove yourself from anything or anyone else that could divert your attention.

This is your time so give yourself the headspace you deserve to honour your commitments.

Get clear on your objectives

Ok so now you’ve set aside some time, removed all distractions, all that’s left is to set the right intentions as you start.

Now take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and ask yourself “what do I want to achieve?”

Start off small.

For example an achievement could be “I want to prove to myself I can write a blog”.

Answering this question with a clear mind will help you get the most out of the change you’re about to make.

The goal is to get used to taking new actions and overcoming your mind telling you why you shouldn’t.

So enjoy the process and if you ever feel stuck, just remember this quote….

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. Mark Twain

All in all, getting started is often the hardest step to creating change but it’s essential if you want to grow.

Now over to you, I’d love to know….
