I'm by nature, someone who likes to get things done but I am also certainly guilty of procrastinating at times and all the more so if in my head it's something ' I don't want to do'.
Whether it's work or personal, it can be too easy just not to do something (until you have to!) which is why I love this simple idea from James Clear. Newton's quote below about objects in motion tend to stay in motion, has particularly struck a chord.
This can also be applied to social media and I often find that this is the key lesson for some of the people we help at Tribal Impact on their social journey; you just need to start.. post that tweet, start a conversation, respond to someone's post; just be social and don't think about it too much as otherwise, chances are you'll put it off.
As Sir Isaac Newton taught us a long time ago, objects at rest tend to stay at rest and objects in motion tend to stay in motion. This is just as true for humans as it is for falling apples. The 2–Minute Rule works for big goals as well as small goals because of the inertia of life. Once you start doing something, it’s easier to continue doing it. I love the 2–Minute Rule because it embraces the idea that all sorts of good things happen once you get started.
