“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao-tzu
Its easy to stay in bed. The sun’s gonna rise whether you are ready for it or not. It doesn’t wait for that snooze button (damn those buttons!)
I realized by the crowds gathered around the memorial into the late evening hours that the morning was in fact the only time that Abe and I were going to get a little alone time. Early in the morning. So, indeed, after a step…..a slow and coffee less step, I was off and running to see what I could capture. As luck would have it, it seems like many had not taken that first step. Love it!
More to come later in a quick tip about a few ways to get rid of those converging columns by the way, but for now….I kinda like it actually.
So I recorded tonights quick tip video earlier today while driving (I promise, I was more aware of the road than it appears!)
Sometimes you just have to get started. It can sometimes appear to be a big step, but the key is to begin.
I personally experienced this today while working on a design for an event that seemed to have made it to the top of the “to do” list for several days running now. So I tried a little trick this time. Instead of looking at the project as a long and endless one that was going to take hours, I just convinced myself that I was just going to get is started. Begin the layout, place a few of the basic building blocks, and essentially get the skeleton created. 4 short hours later (it seemed like 1 actually!) and the design was over 90% there!
Sometimes its just the first step thats the hardest.
Just take it and fix the mistakes later……
