You build a cathedral one brick at a time

May 10, 2022

I am often asked for tips on getting unstuck, out of paralysis, out of overwhelm. And my answer is always the same:

Take one small action right now.

It can be tiny.

Just take it.

You build a cathedral one brick at at time. And, it's time to lay one brick.

  • Get up and walk around the house if you are stuck in a sedentary life style

  • Add one more person to your LinkedIn connections if you are ready to look for a new job.

  • Invite one person out for coffee who may be open to mentoring you.

  • Return the packages on your kitchen table. (this one is for me!)

  • Tell one person about your business, or job goals, or career search.

  • Then tell two tomorrow.

  • Pull out one outfit you could see yourself wearing to a new job. Hang it outside your closet.

  • Book one summer camp for your child.

  • Book the mammogram.

  • Pin one new hair style to your private Pinterest board.

  • Find and read one article about an industry that interests you.

  • Invite your partner on a date.

  • Make your bed.

Newton's first law of motion: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction.

Please don't dismiss the power of one small motion, action, movement... What one brick can you lay today on your way to building your cathedral?
