Daily Mindset

“Perfection can be spelled with the word paralysis.” – Churchill

The act of “starting” is all to often the most challenging.

As human beings, our survival mechanism kicks in when we approach change. It sounds the alarm, telling us we are in dangerous waters. We may find ourselves forecasting to the future, vividly conceptualizing the hardships, obstacles, and all the tough unknowns that path may bring.

This defense mechanism is amazing for avoiding predators. It can save our life! But on the hand… it can also prevent it.

Breathe into those thoughts that run through our mind when we approach change. Recognize them. Accept them for what they are. And then put them where they belong, because it’s time to get to work.
