Done is Better than Perfect

Sheri Here,

You may have a vision, a life bucket list, but where are you on actually getting something done?  Even a small step?

What Is Your Plan? (header)
We’ve talked about taking the next indicated step (See “The Next Indicated Step”), but it may have yielded very poor results – that’s ok, you took a step.

Or it may have gotten you further than you’ve ever gone before – woohoo!

It might be time to come up with a full blown plan to do something.

Planning doesn’t need to be hard or boring – it could start with the number 1 item that you are dreaming about.

Now it is time to put together a list of what’s wanted and needed.

Create An Outline

You could sit down with a piece of paper and create an outline – like this one for moving to a new house (not yet bought and old house not yet sold)

  • Old house
    • Getting Ready to Sell
      • Declutter – sell, give away, trash
      • Paint
      • Clean Floors
      • Fix broken things – e.g. leak in the sink
      • Clean the whole house
      • Start packing infrequently used items to open up the space to look uncluttered and spacious.
    • List House
      • Contact desired realtor
      • Set value of old house
      • List house
    • Sell House
    • Move
      • Finish packing
      • Hire movers
      • Move
    • New House
      • Get financial information ready for mortgage broker
        • Clean up credit if necessary
      • Talk to mortgage broker to see how much of a loan you can afford
      • Begin search with established budget in mind
        • Contact your realtor for possible listings
        • Peruse Zillow and other internet services
      • Decide what you can afford and what is available at that price to see if it interesting enough to finish process
      • Buy house (coordinate with sale of old house)
      • Move in

Steps In The Process

You can see there are a number of steps that will take time and a number of places in the plan that you may decide the timing or supply of available houses is poor.

Possibly the amount you can afford is less than the house you want. You can then discontinue the process or put it on hold.

This is a simplistic example of a complicated process, but hopefully you get the idea.  Who knows, you may experience no barriers and you have moved into a new house!

Just brainstorm the steps for the goal that you want to work on and take them in the appropriate order.

The Next Indicated Step

Sheri Here,

Choosing the next indicated step – all too often we have so many things to choose from that just leave us confused, spinning and overwhelmed.

How do you choose what’s next?

Often there is a clear path to our objective if we listen carefully to our heart, intuition, or inner self.

Maybe there is a clear path and it’s easy – just take the first step.  Sometimes it’s not easy.  Sometimes the options are limited, and we are stuck with one or two choices.

So, what is the next indicated step in that circumstance?

Stop and look at your primary objective…

And decide what will move the objective the quickest or logically the next step.

That is where you go! Simple, eh? Choosing the step might be simple or hard and so might the action.

The action itself might take tenacity to perform – just go for it! Screw up your courage and move one step, one small step for you.

It will change your life.

Sometimes we are stopped from taking the step…

And then we berate ourselves for being wimps or cowards.  We lose faith in ourselves.

This is the time for self-compassion.  To be loving and kind to our sensitive self.  To give ourselves permission to be human.

Take a step back and consider an alternative that is palatable to reduce that sense of procrastination and inaction. A little step, another little step and another add up over time.

Slow and steady wins the race.  Remember the fable about the tortoise and the hare!

If you are still stuck, hit reply, and fill me in or schedule a call here.

‘til the next time.
