Do you have something important that you need to do but even the thought of it makes you feel so uncomfortable that you just avoid it?
It might be risking rejection; doing something boring; risking looking stupid…..
In this great podcast, DJ Moran talks about slicing these challenges up really thinly. Finding the point where you have made it small enough that you will take action. He uses the metaphor of jumping off a piece of paper. Even though the jump is really, really tiny; you are still jumping and that is very different to not jumping at all.
And once you have gotten moving, you might tackle jumping off the phone book next!
