Taking the first steps to doing something new or different can be quite difficult. But without taking those steps, you would be where you are right now forever, no changes, just the same old, same old. Who knows, this change might lead you to something beautiful that you have never imagined before. 

I got inspired after searching through pictures, and I saw this quote by Will Smith, "The first step is you have to say that you can." And it dawned to me that yes, that is definitely what I should do. Even if your goal is a long shot, you have to believe at least enough to fuel your efforts. 


In this post, I will be listing down steps on how to take your first steps [yes, i repeated that on purpose] and all new stuff I have longed to do while setting a two month deadline. After each accomplished task [hopefully], I will be writing about it and it will definitely be expected in this blog in the future.


Hopefully, by the end of this post [or my future posts], you will be inspired as well to take your first steps.



HOW TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP

1. DO NOT WAIT. The best time to start is now, there will never be the perfect time to start it unless you believe it is. You will learn so much more by doing rather than waiting. 

2. ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR DREAMS/GOALS. This is very essential to get the motivation you need to achieve it. Think of why you wanted to do this in the first place and focus on that. Visualize your goals, think of the short term and long term steps needed to accomplish and set a time line. Time lines will help you focus more and get something done, even day by day. 


3. ACTION. Simply said, do it. Nothing will happen after all if you do not. Of course, this definitely is a hard thing to do, but you will see that you can accomplish it with consistent action.


LIST OF THINGS TO DO BEFORE DECEMBER ENDS

1. Create your first ever blog. [read here]
For now, five would do. After all, it doesn't always have to be huge steps, do they? Little steps count as well, they serve as your foundation. 
2. Organize my study notes.
3. Do a 'Lyric Text Prank!'. [Because, why not?]
4. Go hunting for Christmas gifts.
5. Finish reading The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
