I have a friend who works a 9 to 5 in the financial sector and mentioned to me that he is sick of his job and wants to quit.
He said what he really wants to do is write books.
I enthusiastically responded, “that’s awesome — what are you working on?”
He answered “nothing at the moment. I’m looking into a few things right now but I have a few prospects on the horizon.”
In my mind, I sighed and said “uh oh, I know where this is headed.” 🤐
Unfortunately for him, it was headed nowhere because I knew what his vague response signaled: he had no idea where to begin to make his desire of writing books a reality.
And unfortunately, he likely will never get started.
Like many of us at times, my friend is overthinking and overcomplicating the process of creating change in his life.
It caused me to ponder the following:
Let’s break down each of these points and apply them to my friend.
My two cents for him and anyone else looking to create any type of change in their lives but isn’t making moves: stop overcomplicating the process.
Get out of your head and stop shooting yourself in the foot. Simplify by just getting started and do something every day that moves your goal forward in the tiniest of ways.
Do that for a while then let’s talk. 😉
