What’s more difficult: getting to the gym, or actually working out at the gym?
Or getting into the shower, vs. actually showering?
Getting into bed vs. sleeping?
A lot of the times, the most difficult thing is the initial hurdle.
It happens way more often in life than we think.
That hurdle is sneakily in every aspect of our life:
- Getting to the library to study
- Writing a new blog post
- Starting any new habit
- Starting a new project
- Starting a new book
The common theme is starting
The start is always the most difficult because we see this giant hurdle right at the front of the gate and fear that we can’t make it.
Although I don’t know of any scientific research that proves this hurdle exists, I believe that even just realizing that the hurdle exists is part of the many steps we take to prepare ourselves to jump it.
I have this huge hurdle in front of my new project to start creating podcasts and YouTube content. It’s a big hurdle. So I suppose I should start stretching my hips. This hurdle is a big one, but I plan to jump it.
