Why Start?

This is the first post in a new series on rcThink called “Just Start It”. It’s an answer to what I wish I had whenever I’m starting something new. It’s my answer to the question of “Where do I start?” for everything I know.My hope is to start an amazing resource for people wanting to start things like hiking, wakeboarding, computer programming or photography, all things I’ve started at some point and have got past the initial “I don’t know where to go” stage.why start anything?Starting is the hardest part. Often you are forced to do something but there are many times that you can start things for pleasure as well. Some things I’ve learned because I thought it was required, only to learn later that I didn’t need it.If you look at it right, learning can be fun. The more you know, the more you can do with it. I find the more I learn about different areas of life, the more I can apply those ideas to other places. Learning new things keeps life fresh and interesting. It can get you a new job, let you meet new people or introduce you to your favorite new hobby. The more you start new things the easier it gets.where’s the end?Does there need to be an end? With learning new things you can set a goal if you like. You could learn a particular song on the guitar and then you’re finished. You might just want to learn some computer programming to make a website for your new business and then you will be done. You may be trying out a new hobby for 30 days to see if you like it.I highly recommend trying something for at least 30 days to see what it’s like. You might want to try a 30 day Challenge. ¬†Who knows where it will go from there? Maybe you’ll love it. Maybe you won’t. But you won’t know until you try.where do i go from here?I definitely can’t claim to be an expert in every single thing that I do. If you’ve moved past what I can teach you with my resources here, and want to continue, you’ll want to look through the resources section. I’ve made my best effort to include some blogs, websites and people that would be excellent next steps on your journey. Take a minute to congratulate yourself on your accomplishment if you’ve made it this far. You’ve gotten past the hardest part of learning; starting.
