Getting Started by Mark TwainPosted: June 7, 2012
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”
– Mark Twain
This was this morning’s quote for my Meetup group. It’s a very simple message yet very powerful. I have often found myself running in circles when I have a huge task that overwhelms me. Picture a circling boat without a captain at the helm; round and round we go. You get the idea.
How do you break overwhelming tasks down? Lists! Ingenious, isn’t it?
This vision I have for my next chapter of my life has so many moving pieces, not only am I impatient to go through the process, I’m really not sure where to begin.
Thank you Mark Twain! I’m going to start making some lists.
