Advice for perfectionists, planners or anyone stuck in analysis paralysis:
You don't need to dream up a big plan. Just begin. Anywhere. Now.
Starting small can do two things:
- Plant seeds – little actions that grow along with your time and attention.
- Leave breadcrumbs – to eventually lead you to the right action, even if you're far off right now.
If it feels right, start. You don't have to worry about the end (or the middle, or even the beginning). Your action will be enough.
