Find Magic in Baby Steps

Ever felt stuck and not able to move forward on a project or learning something new?  Recently, one of my writing projects came to a screeching halt.  Some helpful writer buddies gave me suggestions of things to add to the project.  While good ideas, it threw me into going down rabbit holes that distracted me.

If you have felt the same about a pet project or new business or learning something new, here is an inspiring quote.

"Dream big. Start small. But most of all, start." - Simon Sinek, author & inspirational speaker* It reminded me how important baby steps are as you approach making forward progress.

Try This: Find Magic in Baby Steps

According to an article on, "The baby step is one of the strongest tools you can use to achieve your goals. Baby steps come from breaking your larger goal into smaller and smaller elements, which you then achieve one by one."** Here is a way to get started:

  • Write down the project or goal where you feel stuck.
  • Under it, jot ideas of things you can do towards completing that project or goal that take 30 minutes or less.
  • Pick one task to be the first baby step.
  • List resources to support the baby step for moving forward.
  • Set aside the time on your calendar for your baby step.
  • Celebrate completing it by striking off the baby step on your list!

If this seems way too simple, it's by design as a "baby" step.  Enjoy how fun it is to use small moves to get you engaged and making progress!
