Action, by Deborah Henry-Pollard on Catching Fireworks blog

There are risks and costs to action.
But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.
John F. Kennedy

Happy New Year!

Have you made your New Year's Resolutions?  And are there one or two things which were on your list last year but which you never got around to?  A hobby you have always wanted to take up, a country you have wanted to visit, a new career you want to explore, a change you have wanted to make in your life?  

You aren't alone - we have all done it.

There are lots of reasons why these things never leave the launch pad.  Sometimes it's simply because you realise it isn't actually what you want to do.  That's fine because you can just take it off the list and forget about it.

But what about if, for example, it is that book you have always wanted to write?  You had the idea and the outline written 2 years ago.  You may even have the first chapter drafted.  But for some reason, it never moves forward.  It could be paralysis by analysis - you are thinking so much about how it might work out, whilst never actually finding out.  It could be a perceived lack of time, even though the time it takes to think about how little time you have is time which could be spent jotting down a few sentences or buying a notebook.  It could be fear of failure which holds you back, although if it all goes horribly wrong, at least you can applaud the effort.

Looking ahead to January next year, will you be comfortably where you are now, adding your dream yet again to your New Year's Resolutions.  

Or will you take a chance and start today with just one tiny action?  And one small action a day will get you 365 actions closer to your goal by the end of the year.

If this has struck a chord with you and you want to find out if coaching will support you reach your goals,  check out how we could work together and get in touch.
