You know what to do. You just don’t do it. It is so easy to find excuses to not do something that is really important because it is hard to do. It is easy to find excuses why you need to do the little unimportant things and put off the difficult stuff that really matters. So I say “stop making lists, delegate the little stuff, and take the first step to be a success.” I read Seth Godin’s post Sure but what’s the hard part and got me thinking about this and how it home for me.
I’ve heard this from others telling me over and over again that someone else can do this or that for me, but it was easier for me to make excuses or to presume that I was the only one in the whole wide world that could do something. I remember hearing and believing “if you want something done right, do it yourself.” The problem with that is that there is only one of you. You cannot do it all. It’s that indispensable thing we tend to do to ourselves. Today is the day to let go.
