It’s never easy to get started. That’s because going from zero to one requires a start, a spark. It’s harder to start a spark than continue a fire, but as long as we can start the spark then we can burn the world. Another thing that gets in the way: too much magnesium, too much fuel, not enough striking. We convince ourselves that we need more, more, more. We don’t need more. We need to strike.
Half monkey-mind, half afraid of the truth. The solution to both is to sit down, shut up, and let it all unfold.
We find that the whole thing was a fools errand anyway. Starting should be no harder than seeing.
If you’re having a hard time starting, then take ten steps back, and ask yourself the basic questions.
- What do I want?
- Who am I?
- Why am I here?
- What’s the point?
I have my answers, and it has made all the difference. I am free to do whatever I want, because I know what I want. Action is as easy as seeing.
