“We are A-to-Z thinkers, fretting about A, obsessing over Z, yet forgetting all about B through Y.”
Very often big tasks terrify us. We think that they are too ambitious or outside our grasp, but when we divide them into small actions, they seem to be more feasible. We should see overcoming an obstacle as a process. Be focused on the part that we do at the moment, and do it well, and then later move to the next step.
Panic, disorder, and distraction are the enemies of the process. When we act in an unordered way, we lose track of what’s in front of us. We think too much about the future, about the final result, all the while missing the possible opportunities of the moment.
Of course, we want to have goals, because our actions need to have a purpose. By just dividing them into manageable proportions, we replace fear with the process. We feel the strength and we know what to do.
Follow the process.
