In other words, it’s better to promise to walk a block and actually do it than to promise to run a mile and sleep in.
Most of the time that we fail to accomplish our goals, it’s because we made the process too cumbersome, unrealistic, or large. Since it would involve rearranging vast portions of an-already busy life, we choose to avoid the task, remaining in place.
Pick something smaller when you’re stuck and move forward on that. Any movement is better than stagnation.
