Sometimes, you just need to start the project

Starting a paper is like taking a jump into the unknown. Sometimes you just need to get going. Perhaps that tells me that I am a bad planner. But for me, it's the discovery part that's fun about research-and why I like the research part of my job.

via entrepreneurial proverbs:
Momentum builds on itself -- just start. Do whatever you can. Draw a user interface. Write a spec. Make something, anything, that people can see and touch and try. A prototype is worth ten thousand words. One you start moving, you will find that people start to carry you along.

Entrepreneurial Proverbs, by Marc Hedlund.

Very inspiring!
