Committing to actually starting

Overcome your mind's resistance to get started by saying, "I'm all in. I'm going to start today." Then get moving. If you're not good at this, commit to making a small habit change this instant.

Many people want to learn a language or start exercising, but then don't take action. It is because they haven't really committed to getting started.

Our minds are good at coming up with rationalizations, especially when we're procrastinating on something:

The skill to master is getting started. You don't have to exercise for half an hour; you only need to start.

Feedback is essential when you learn a new skill. However, when people learn the skill of 'creating new habits,' they think making mistakes is a sign of being a failure and showing an utter lack of discipline.

People fail to realise how important developing the habit skill is. They have a specific idea of what their habit will be like, and when it doesn't go according to plan, they feel guilty and think they're a failure.
