Let Yourself Take Baby Steps

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned two concrete goals, but only described one.   Goal #2: Permission to take baby steps when learning something new.

I really wanted to join the Ultimate Blog Challenge. However, I have not blogged daily. Could I do it? How would I feel if I didn’t post every day? I have not posted directly to my blog, as my Virtual Assistant posts them from my ezines or articles.  Then, the other part was, promoting the blog and putting a banner up on my website.  Adding a widget to my blog seemed too technical to me. I watched  Michelle Schaeffer’s video 3 times. The video was very small and I couldn’t see details of click here and click here.  I really wished my VA was back from holiday. However, I love Michelle’s soothing, encouraging voice. I decided to take small steps:

I went back to the original email invitation to find out the first step. And it was easy, put in your name and email to sign up. I hope you are not rolling on the floor with laughter at this point. Well, if you are, it’s okay. I had gotten so lost in the details and concerns about how to do this piece or that piece, that I forgot why I wanted to do this. I also forgot that the main part, which is writing, is what I like to do.

I would get to the banner and the re-tweets- another learning curve for me, later.  So often do we get caught in the details of moving forward or in a new direction because we can’t figure out the first step.   I coach my clients all the time about finding the next right step for them and encouraging and helping them to take baby steps. Although the context of intuitive and spiritual coaching may seem different, I walk through the maze with my clients, pointing to click here and click here.

  1. Great reminder. We’ve become a 2 hours society where we should be able to do it all NOW, RIGHT NOW! Two hours refers to the amount of time a person can get into and out of a really bad situation within the time it takes to watch a movie. That’s not real life and a lot of the boring stuff is left out. Yet that becomes our belief. We should be able to do it all and have it done quickly.

    Glad you’ve reminded us that isn’t usually (if ever) the case!

  2. Catherine, this post really resonated with me. I tend to take in too much data and end up getting overwhelmed with it all and don’t even take the first step. I have a quote on my wall to remind me JUST DO IT…ONE SMALL STEP AT A TIME. I constantly tell me clients to take baby steps and have to remind myself to do the same. I am focused on getting my writing juices flowing and will figure out the rest later. Thanks again.
