This Week in PCM : Allowing Yourself to Be a Beginner

Oftentimes many people are dissuaded from starting new tasks or changing their habits because they are not expert. It is important to remember that everyone starts off as an amateur. No one instantly becomes an expert. Of course, you want to become an expert one day but getting started is the first step.

I admit that I fall into this trap. When you have a degree, certification or a certain success level, you hate even thinking about the reality of starting over. You realize how much time and effort it takes to accomplish these things; however, you must admit that eating unhealthy, not exercising and procrastination are not good habits. We must change our habits like yesterday. We must also change our unrealistic perceptions of what new habits’ successes would look like. Remember, our future success may not look like our current success. For example, your definition of success receiving your degree differs from your success definition of receiving your first job. As we advance through life, our success definition changes. That’s why when you decide to change, you cannot uphold your future success definition to your current one. Therefore, allow yourself to be a beginner by starting right now!
