My blog last week was about the knowing-doing gap, knowing what you need to do to accomplish your goals, but getting stuck in the “doing”. I gave some suggestions of how to find your way out of that gap. In writing that blog, something funny happened: I realized I was in middle of the knowing –doing gap myself.
I had a programmer create a temporary website for my business to serve as a basic informational and yes, no movement. Stuck.
I needed to break it down into turtle steps. Turtle steps are steps so small that the feeling of overwhelm does not stop me from completing the task. When I say small, I mean miniscule. I broke it down to just e-mailing an inquiry to two web designers I know to ask about layouts and refine it from there. No more endless thought swirls telling me what I should or shouldn’t do, it was all about action.
By taking my actions and take it one step at a time, you really do win the race.
