Forget Epic. Start Boring

When you are tempted to start new things in an epic way, start boring.

Start what you need to do today, right now if possible.

You will lose crucial energy and time if you wait. You will gain crucial energy and time when you take action.

Start small if it’s the only way you can. In short, start small even if you think you can start at a higher level.

One tiny action is enough to overcome the force of inertia.

Want to build a new habit and today’s the 22nd? Don’t wait until the first day of next month or the beginning of a new year. Seize the moment! Start now.

Ignore the epic start. Start without the grand announcement to yourself, family, or neighbour.

Do not wait for the stars to align. Be content to start boring, quietly, unannounced.

Just start.
