MightyPetunia.com has been up and active for 2 months. Seems hard to believe! So now I sit here and say..."what's next?". It's that feeling that you get after you worked really hard on something, gotten your second wind and then want to go to the next level. But one of the little twists is that there is so much information coming at me daily, it's hard to tell what is the next right thing to do. One article tells me how important text is on a site so work on that. The next article tells me how important photos are so focus on them . The next thing I read emphasizes key words and the one after that external links. It's a little crazy. I've gotten to the point where I find myself doing nothing. It's like analysis paralysis. So much information and analysis is in my head that figuring out what to do next seems overwhelming.
This issue doesn't apply just to a business thing. I've had it happen to me (and seen it happen with others) in areas like fitness and nutrition. There are so many different options out there that you can get bogged down in the options. But here's the thing, you've just got to start something. You can always adjust. You can always revise. You can always take a different path. Starting is the key. Once you have a little momentum, it's alot easier to move. Try pushing a car from a dead stop....it's difficult. But once it gets rolling a little, things get alot easier.
If you're struggling with getting to the gym, make a date with yourself and keep it for one day only. Just one day. Don't think about having to go for the next month or even week. Get there for that day. And then do it the next day. Just that day. If you're struggling with finding a nutritional program, pick what your gut says is the best for you and try it for a meal. Get that win and go to the next meal. If you string a few meals together, the success feels great and you'll find it easier to get a day under your belt. Once you get yourself into the gym or eating a little better, things will start looking alot differently.
I've not been in a good place recently regarding working out and nutrition. I tend to think of the big picture and start to get overwhelmed. So, I'm back at the gym today and I'm prepping my meals for the week. Feels pretty good. I've got the car rolling. Things will get easier.
