“The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
We’ve all heard this ancient wisdom from Lao Tzu. On the surface, this quote seems to be very obvious. What it makes us think about, however, is that any journey or task, no matter how long or difficult, is completed one step at a time and starts just like any other journey or task starts.
Often when we have a daunting task or even a personal goal before us we are discouraged or overwhelmed. Remember these words and we can learn several bits of wisdom from such as:
- Break up a large or difficult goal or task into smaller, more manageable goals or tasks.
- Do not procrastinate; the sooner you begin the journey, the sooner you will finish.
- If we do a little bit each day towards our goals or tasks, we can accomplish a lot in a year.
