The hardest part of a new project is just starting

I noticed at work the other day that the hardest part of a new project was just getting started. I am not talking about assigned work, or daily general tasks, but real long term complicated projects. In reflection I can see parallels to my personal life too. Every time I sit and think of a new project that delay at the beginning is the hardest thing to overcome.

Surely some planning is always a decent idea, but sometimes in life, very much like a cold swimming pool the best method is feet first and sudden. Just get it over with and put some progress on the board.

Food for thought on a Tuesday morning.
