Do Something


Do Something.

Do Something. Two simple words that are shared by Stephen G. Peters in his book, Do You Know Enough About Me to Teach Me? 

How often do we want to do something, but we are unsure of the effectiveness? Or maybe we aren't confident that we are doing the "right" thing? We let opportunities slip by, when all we need to do is to do Something.

How do we overcome fear and find courage to do something? 

Here are 3 ways to find courage:

1. Take baby steps. "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." Don't try to do it all at once. Small changes can lead to bigger changes.

2. Find moral support. Find a trusted friend, colleague, or boss whom you can share your fears and ideas. They will provide encouragement to help you take the next step.

3. Don't wait. Ask yourself, "What will happen if I don't act?" Then get started doing something.

What other ideas do you have for finding courage to do something?

Can you remember a time when you weren't sure what to do but you did something anyway? What were your results?
