The messy middle

There’s an old saying that emphasizes starting, that pitching up is already half the battle. Any change worth pursuing, whether it’s a health goal, spiritual or financial, does require significant commitment just to start. To go from “I want to” to “I am” is a huge step worthy of patting yourself on the back.

Once you start, more things will inevitably change, for there is no plan that could take into account all possibilities. When this happens, and especially when the path ahead is so foggy, persistence is key. Do your homework, assess your options, and keep going. By keeping the journey interesting, and building in rewards, you’ll be clearing the fog bit by bit.

While a great beginning is half the battle, a committed middle is a critical element to finishing well.
