How to start.


The hardest thing is to start. But once you do, once you take that first step and get off your butt, there’s no turning back. So I will take inspiration from what started over 3 years ago when my life coach suggested I write out a simple step- by- step way to work through a little issue I was struggling with…that exercise is what ultimately lead me to write my book.  So whatever it is you want – just start.

  1. Stop stalling, shilly-shallying, dilly-dallying, schlepping, procrastinating, postponing, prolonging and putting it on the back burner.
  2. Ask yourself WTF are you waiting for? A fricking sign? Permission? An invitation? Visitation?
  3. Relinquish perfection – nothing is ever 100% ready.
  4. Something is better than nothing. Hence the phrase “it’s a start”.
  5. Slay your fear of failure.
  6. Engage in the power of momentum – aka Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah!
  7. Replace lethargy with legendary.
  8. Guts + gumption + get-up-and-go = glory.
  9. Pull a NIKE and Just Do It!
  10. Way to go! Reward yourself for doing it! (Chips, red wine, newfound fame).
  11. Listen to Buddha! “There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth”…not going all the way, and not starting.”
