Nothing happens overnight, but when we take small steps in the right direction, eventually we do get somewhere. It’s much, for me, like my everyday to-do list. If I write it down and can then cross out what I’ve accomplished, then I feel like I got something done. And I did.
But why is this so hard to do with bigger things? We often look at where we are in our lives and wish we were further down the road to that place we wanted to be or that place we wish we could be. I’m as guilty as the next person.
Sometimes it is because I’m not sure what the next step is, or my vision keeps getting blurry and I can’t quite grasp the focus I need to find my way. There are definite actions I know I need to take and something always seems to hold me back: procrastination, deciding I’m not ready or I’m not good enough, or some small task comes to mind and I let myself make it more important than my own work.
It is a day-to-day battle, but one that I keep doing my best to fight.
