Reaching your goals

On my way to San Francisco last week, I was watching a football game while eating at the Denver airport. I’m not much of a football fan generally, but it was on, and there was some time to pass until my next flight.

The announcer said one of the players was only 5 yards away form breaking the all time rushing record.  This made me think.  At this moment in time, it wasn’t about the player, or the game. It was much bigger than that. How did this player get to be within 5 yards of breaking a record?

By starting.

What haven’t you done yet that you’ve been wanting to do?  If you don’t start, you won’t be the equivalent of 5 yards away from your goal in the future.  What’s the first step?
