Starting Small

I’m over the moon excited! I get to be part of The Lazy Genius’s launch team for her book, The Lazy Genius Way, which comes out August eleven.

Her podcast has challenged me in so many ways as well as gives me a fresh voice and perspective. One of her principles is to start small!

And if you’ve read my other posts, you know my love of reading. So, it would be normal to be reading another book while I am devouring my digital copy of The Lazy Genius Way. I’m also reading, Better than Before, by Gretchen Rubin, which is about habits. I am just getting started and my brain is overwhelmed…there are so many things that go into why we create habits and how we go about creating them.

I am currently in the middle of a LOT of projects. Evan’s preschool binder. A crocheted afghan. Catching up on documenting Evan’s milestones through the pictures on my phone. Keeping up on all of Evan’s goals. Clothes for kids’ market. Keeping the house clean. Menu planning and cooking and cleaning the dishes and doing it all over again three times a day. Reading several books. Cleaning up e-mail.

I am starting small. Starting with Evan’s milestones. I used to try and do a week’s worth of photos a day. Or ten minutes a day. Or work when we were at therapy. Small tonight means two days.

My routine will consist of putting Evan to bed, turning on Pandora to an instrumental station, and writing two days worth. If I do more, I do more. But two days.

And that’s what I did. It’s a start. It’s a small start. But that’s the best beginning.
