Start Anywhere

“There’s no need to find the right starting place. With a big task or a confusing problem when you don’t know where to start, begin with the most obvious thing, whatever is in front of you. The notion that there is no such thing as a proper beginning and the search to find that ideal starting place, robs us of time. We distance ourselves from the task, and the vision of what it will take to do it makes tackling the job seem mountainous. Once a job is under way you have a new and more realistic perspective. You are inside the problem while looking at it rather than standing safely at the perimeter. The ‘Start Anywhere” rule is liberating. It means that you can make progress on some dream or dreaded task at any time.”
