    This was so timely! I arrived at work to find all those projects I had put away for the weekend still waiting for me. I am taking your advice and clearing ALL the folders off my desk except for one. When that one is done, I will reach for the next “right” one! Have a great day!

    I love this! This is something that I am actually trying to instill in my own mind. I started a new nutrition blog on Saturday that I’m hoping will turn into a counseling business once I’m certified as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist this summer. And of course I want to reach everyone! right now! give me followers! But all I’ve given people is my background at this point. They have no reason to follow me, to come back, to trust me yet. So I’m breaking it down, planning my first real food-related post, planning what I’m going to put up on Instagram to capture people’s attention in the mean time. Creating a schedule. Etc.
    So thank you for the reminder as I start forming lists in my head, once again. Baby steps is what will make the most difference.

    This is really helpful, but not only on Physical training goals….. Anything that I do can be broken into simple steps, and being mindful and taking the present only, dividing and winning….!!!
    Thanks for a beautiful reminder on how to treat ourselves kindly…..rather then putting the pressure of doing something really big and overwhelming, small steps and focus…

    This is exactly what I try and do daily….sometimes I let my stinking thinking get a n the way, but then I try and bring it back to ‘the next right thing’! Thanks for this!!!

    Perfectly timed as always. I am starting two classes for my Masters today in addition to working full time and I am worried about how I’ll be able to get it all done. One chapter, one paper at a time. Thanks!

    I’ve been in the process of creating a podcast for way to long. I work full-time, teach yoga, personal train, and instruct boot camps so not a lot of time, but I really don’t have any excuses to be deeper into the project. The first podcast is done, just not edited and posted. Today I am going to focus on the “next right action”. Thanks for sharing.

    My best,
