If you fear something, it’s certainly because you don’t know enough about that thing and as a result you don’t do much about it. However, getting extra knowledge about something doesn’t guarantee you taking action either, but why? One reason is that you don’t know where to start. You didn’t find yet the first minimal practical steps to get started. The first small steps you can easily achieve to get in motion. Every process is capable of being divided into a batch of steps and tasks that make it actionable. the concept of ‘’Divide and conquer’’ has four main advantages for your workflow: (1) Attractiveness: you have a series of easy tasks to complete rather than a big scary mission. (2) Focus: one clear task at a time, no question to ask. (3) Flexibility: if you’re stuck, you can apply the same method to divide the problem in subtasks. (4) Control: you know exactly where you are, what you already did and what you still need to do. Efforts are well distributed. In the end, you don’t have to plan your tasks but you just need to have an ordered to-do list. Breaking things down gives you a structure that feels paradoxically freeing. You do yourself a favor, setting you up for success!
