If you don’t know what the answer is, go find someone that does.

If you don’t know what coding language you should be using, choose one.

If you don’t know what the customer wants, schedule a call.

If you don’t know what features are in the task you are working on, identify some and get to work.

If you don’t know what to do on the field, run to the ball.

In any endeavor, the first step can sometimes be the most daunting.  Perhaps we are part of a very complicated project, the customer is hard to talk to, no one really knows what they are doing, or the rules of the game are really complicated.

Whatever the case, Run To, Jump In, Take a Leap, whichever you want to call it.  The goal is to start, to get going and take that first step.

Because once you take that first step, all the other steps that you are worried about – using the right coding language, asking the customer the right questions, knowing what to work on, what to do with the ball when you get there, will all fall into place.

Run To and never stop.
