Words are important. They shape what we do.
A very important word is “start.” The premise of our discussion of the word “start” is a quote from Arthur Ashe: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
Bruce prepared an acrostic using START -.
Say “what can I do”
Take an action
Ask how later, just do now
Reach beyond your belief
Then take another step. And another step. And another step
Once you start, it is important to look at incremental steps and improvements you can take. Each increment is further away from where you started and gets you closer to the idea of “stop stopping.”
