Getting going

Sometimes getting going is the hardest part of getting a job done. Once we begin, the work often flows along smoothly. But making that initial start can occasionally be tough. We might sympathize with the writer of Ecclesiastes, "Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof."Eccl. 7:8;

It may seem that a project is difficult to start because we think we are going to dislike doing it. Or we may not feel adequate. Or we simply may not know where to start. But aside from these excuses, there is a fundamental reason for the delay.
