Do It Now!

One of the greatest pieces of advice I have ever gotten was to get in the habit is doing something right now. I remember reading an article years ago about the concept of just doing something to get the ball rolling instead of over thinking or over analysing something. This is a concept I am working on in my work life.

Now I am planning the single most important task I have each day and deciding to get that task done before lunch. This task has to be something that moves me towards a big goal. Each quarter our management team sits down and reviews our previous quarters strategic goals and then sets goals for the coming quarter. Most days my top priority item is off of that list of goals.

It's not a huge deal to do something every day to move towards a larger goal, but it is amazing when at the end of a quarter or a year a person is able to look back and see everything that has been accomplished. A little move forward every day pays big dividends in the end.
