What holds people back from their greatness?
It is not one BIG thing that stops people, it is a series of small actions NOT taken. Letting your mind over complicate things, allowing procrastination to creep in, or having standards that are unrealistic.
When you take action and complete one or two small items every day, over time, you will accomplish more than you might imagine. We tend to overestimate what we can accomplish in a short period of time, say one year, and underestimate what we can accomplish in a longer period of time, perhaps a decade.
What shape would your body be in, if over the course of 10 years you did intense yoga for 15 minutes a day, EVERY day?
What books might be written with 20 minutes of focused writing each evening?
What people might be helped if you offered your services daily?
Adding one task to your calendar that will take no more that 30 minutes total, 15 in the morning and 15 in the evening will result in the creation of a project. You will experience a greater sense of completion and satisfaction. It is the small things done consistently over time that create results. What will you create?
