The best place to start is to start.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” — Laozi
There is a reason this quote has survived 26 centuries. It is one of the most powerful ideas in existence, and something I frequently bring up with my clients, who are often overwhelmed by the situations in which they find themselves.
I think of it this way:
- The only thing you know for sure is the past.
- You don’t know the future.
- You’re existing in the present.
You can always pivot. You can always change course. But if you don’t get started, nothing will ever change.
The best place to start is just to start because you know it.
