‘Yeah, but that’s easier said than done.’
I hear that a lot when it comes to changing and learning and building and progressing in general.
People say it with a weary, stern look on their face.
It’s the end before the beginning.
It’s looking at the mountaintop and staying in the valley.
It’s giving up before even giving it a try.
Of course many skills and goals are really hard to master and reach, but that is SO obvious that you really don’t need to mention it.
It’s useless, not rational.
It’s like creating your own roadblocks.
Like inviting exhaustion before taking the first step.
‘Easier said than done’ is a desperate conclusion that gets you nowhere.
It takes the wind out of your sail.
Stop saying it.
Stop holding yourself back.
Just fucking start.
