The First Step is the Hardest

Every year Advoco has a fitness challenge to promote good health and raise money for charity. Each day we earn points by going out and exercising. Whether it’s walking, running, a fitness class, or some other workout, the goal is to just be active.


For these challenges, the first step is always the hardest part for me. Every day I battle with myself to go out and, as Nike says, “Just do it.”


I know what I should be doing, but I find myself battling over that first step. If I just take that first step, it gets easier, and I find joy in being productive and active.


What challenge are you battling today? What project do you need to get done?


As you struggle to get started, just remember that the first step is the hardest. Once you take that step, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to keep moving forward.


Momentum is a powerful thing. After you get moving into an intended direction you’ll be amazed at how far you can go.


Until next time…I’m Marty, make every minute count.
