"It's easier to resist at the beginning than at the end."

~Leonardo Da Vinci


Today is the first business day of a new year.  With a new year brings new beginnings.  A fresh slate, so to speak. 


After a year of many challenges due to the COVID pandemic, it became clear to me that it's important to stop putting things off.   It's so easy to delay getting started on a project or goal and for each person, the cause for that delay could be different.  It could be finances, skillset, family obligations, health, or something else, entirely.   How many projects/goals have you not started because it was just too difficult or because you got into your own head that there's just no way it could end successfully?  A new exercise regime, saving for an investment (home, vehicle, something you've always wanted), learning a new language, starting a business, or offering a new service or product could be one of the many things you've wanted to start.  Whatever it may be that you've been putting off, stop.  Take that leap and get started.  It more than likely won't be perfect in the beginning and that's absolutely okay.  Just start...and then keep going.  And what better time to do that than now, at the beginning of a new year?

I'll admit I've not always taken my own advice above.  I don't know if it's a confidence thing, my need for things to be perfect, or a fear of failure, but I need to not just talk the talk, but walk the walk.  No more excuses.  I've wanted to start a blog for awhile now and just never seemed to get it off the ground.  That changes today with this new series, Motivation Spotlight.  Each Monday, I will bring to you a motivational gem in hopes it will inspire you throughout the week.  I thought it only fitting that the first post would start with a famous quote by Leonardo Da Vinci.

"It's easier to resist at the beginning than at the end."   


What are you going to start (and keep working toward) today?
