And then, when you are ready to get going Mount New seems to get higher and more difficult to hike. You look at it and start thinking- what am I doing here? Was it really me who wanted to climb up there? Do I have the necessary skills to do so? Where does the way up start?
At this point a lot of new projects get discarded, before they even started. But think back to all the new things you already conquered. Let’s start at your 3-year-old self, who had to go to kinder-garden the first time or your 6-year-old self, starting school. You managed those pretty good, didn’t you?
Or later in life when you started your first job, had your first girl-/ boyfriend, this was all exciting and also a little frightening, but you managed well.
So instead of discarding the new project start gaining strength from those past experiences. Look back and tell yourself you managed that, so there is no reason why I shouldn’t manage now.
Let me tell you about two Mount News I got started last year.
Creating this very homepage where you are reading this text. A year ago, I had no clue on how to build a homepage or write a blog. So, I started researching on Google. I found out about Webhosting services, Domains, tools like WordPress that help you create your page and a lot of other things. I am still learning new vocabulary every day.
Who would have thought that I need to know the terms SEO, Slug or Meta data? I have not fully conquered this Mount New, but I started to hike up there, finding my way one little step at a time. And sometimes I have to ask for directions from people that have already conquered this specific mountain and they help me find the right path. So, I just keep on taking tiny steps.
