Action Unlocked: How to get things done

By: Carisa Peters

Hey everyone, it’s Life Coach Carisa here. Today, I want to talk about something important: taking action. I used to overthink a lot, always waiting for the perfect moment to start making progress. But I’ve learned that success comes from taking imperfect action consistently.

Let’s think about your to-do lists. Do you have them scattered around? How do you feel when you look at them? Probably not great, right? They can bring feelings of stress and overwhelm. But what if we could change our relationship with these lists? It’s like being negative towards a partner every day – it doesn’t help. We need to transform how we see our to-dos because they’re part of life.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, know that you’re not alone. As a mom and business owner, I’ve faced challenges too. I get it. But this isn’t about adding pressure. It’s about acknowledging where you are and taking small steps forward.

Why is taking action important? Well, if we never take action, we’ll never achieve our goals. But when we start taking small steps, even if they’re scary, we make progress.

So, how do we break free from overthinking? One strategy is to create small, repeatable habits. Instead of tackling big tasks, focus on small actions every day. These add up over time.

Taking action didn’t come naturally to me. For years, I struggled with fear of failure. But working with a coach helped me see that I was already taking action in many areas of my life. By celebrating small victories, I built confidence.

So, how can you start taking action? Start small, create a routine, stay accountable, and celebrate progress. It’s not easy, but it’s essential if we want to create the life we desire.

So, what action will you take today to move closer to your goals?

Get more from life than you ever thought possible.
