Do what you can, with what you’ve got, where you are.” – William “Squire Bill” Widener
I find the best way to get things done is to just start getting things done.
But shouldn’t I prioritize the tasks first? Not necessarily.
But shouldn’t I make sure I have an exhaustive list? Not required.
Lately I’d let my maximizing tendencies get in the way of my achievement tendencies. I had to stop trying to get everything perfect, or everything right, before beginning. I just had to begin. And, so I did and I had a wonderfully productive weekend. (So much so in fact that it is the wee hours of the week and I am still up accomplishing things, like finally returning to blogging)
So, if you’ve been feeling stuck, feeling frustrated, feeling unproductive, may I suggest: Just get one thing done. Just one. Then turn one into two. And two into three. Why not try?
