When you’re feeling paralyzed by a huge project, the best advice is to just take the next step.
Why? Two important reasons.
- Taking the next step is all you can do. The only way to get to the finish line is one step at a time.
- Taking the next step reminds you: this is not insurmountable. You can do this.
Stop practicing avoidance on whatever it is you’re stressed about. That only adds to your anxiety.
Just take the next step. (…and the next…and the next…)
