Incremental Movements

September 17, 2013

Most of the time, I have a crystal clear vision of where I want to be.  I can sum my goals up in a sentence or two.

For me, that’s the easy part.  It’s the middle part that’s I sometimes struggle with.  I know I can start right now to work toward my goals.  There’s alway something I can do.  The steps may be incremental at best, but that’s okay.  It’s good because at least I’m doing something.

I think people too often discount the importance of incremental steps.  You don’t get to where you want to go in one big leap.  Life is a series of steps, sometimes big, sometimes small, but it’s a series.

Don’t be afraid of starting now.  Right now.  And don’t be afraid of continuing very slowly.  It may (probably will) take a while, but that’s okay.  Just keep doing it, and some point along the way, pause to look back.  You’ll probably say, “Wow, I can’t believe I’ve done all this in only [insert amount of time here]!”
