"The only way for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
To help myself everyday, I have this formula: DAY or Detect - Acknowledge - Yield
Detect - We are usually able to make this first step. This isn't so hard to do at all, I'm sure that even right now as you're reading this you'll be able to think of problems that you have with yourself. The next step is quite more difficult.
Acknowledge - Unfortunately, once a problem is detected most of us would resort to denial. Acknowledge and accept that there is something wrong and needs to be worked out. While you don't stop denying, a problem will remain a problem.
Yield - The dictionary defines yield as "to give forth or produce by a natural process or in return for cultivation" or "to produce or furnish" (dictionary.com). In other words, act! Make your first step as soon as possible! This will enable you to get move like a speeding train. A train usually starts slow and then runs in fast, stable speed once it's past its initial acceleration. Act and get results!
This works for me and I would like to hear how this works for you. What do you think?
