Where do I start?

Where does one start when they don't know where to start?

Start where I am. Right here. Right now. 

Not after I play a game or get another cup of coffee.

Close down all the tabs. Only open the one thing you need to get started.

Get into the flow of the work. Imagine what it's like to work in a state of flow. 

Visualize how people who do this kind of work hold themselves. 

What's the look on their face? 

What are the thoughts going through their minds? How recently did they eat and how soon will they need to top off their energy supplies?

Are you ready for this? Do you like yourself? Do you love that you have the ability to be here; now; doing work that you enjoy?

Doing work you enjoy is pretty exciting - especially when you can put headphones on and rock out to some EDM music on Spotify. This is not an ad for that company and I don't always listen to techno music. I'll often put on a Bach, Cello piece and keep it on repeat. I might even add some environmental sounds like rain or a coffee shop. It depends on what my brain needs to keep it busy enough to not be thinking of what else I should be doing.

How will you get started on those projects you want to build?

Might you start at 200wad as your first distraction - so you can be on @brandonwilson 's streak team? ( that's what I'm doing. )
