The most successful among us, in our midst, seems to be universally good at managing themselves.  Perhaps the thing they do the best is managing their relationship with their actions; especially starting and staying the course. 

This short HBR posting suggests that our greatest struggle “isn’t actually doing the thing, it’s getting started on doing the thing.”  In short, it’s the transition to the task, not the task itself that can be the hard part for many of us.
