Just Get Started Podcast

The phrase Just Get Started can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people but the overarching premise is that you have one life to live so why not make the most of it. Forget the past, whatever happened has happened. Start focusing on the future and where you want to take your life. We all know that being happy is what we all strive for but instead of trying to achieve small moments of happiness why not focus on achieving lifelong fulfillment. Not only will you be a better person but your relationships and career will be positively impacted as well. Hopefully, you'll be inspired to take the "leap of faith" and decide that you want more out of your life than you ever imagined you could have before. But, you have to take the first step. So, what’s holding you back? Just Get Started!... See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.... Show More

April is Month 4 of my Dozen Months of Discovery and this month I decided to write a book.


Originally, when I planned out my 12-months I had April slated as a month where I was going to learn the Ukelele. Solid choice and it was going to allow me to be that “beginner learner” again like I experienced in March learning Spanish. However, as I spoke with a friend and editor of a book I had been thinking about writing, it was determined that maybe the best thing to do was to put a time window into play and just get it done because it can be very easy to procrastinate especially when writing a book.


What I learned through this process

  • Go with your gut, sometimes it is always leading you in the right direction
  • If you are not truly invested in something, you won’t get your best work. Don’t settle for something you deem so important
  • Be patient - some days you don’t have your best stuff. Even Michael Jordan had off shooting nights. 
  • Hold yourself accountable to finish - There are a lot of ways to weasel out of things and put it off until later but later sometimes never comes. Get back on the horse and ride and finish what you started. Parkinson’s Law works well here “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”
