The Next Step

I’ve been upping my running mileage recently.

I’m learning a few things.

One of them being the power of a step.

So what, my destination is a long way from my current location?

I’ll take one step.

The destination just got closer.

Then I’ll put one foot in front of the other a whole bunch of times.

I know that eventually I’ll get there.

How do I eat an elephant?

I don’t.

I’m vegan.

But the principle is the same.

One bite at a time.

I don’t need to summon enough energy to take all of the steps.

I only need to summon enough to take one.

Whatever seems daunting at first can be broken down into individual steps.

Sometimes its helpful to look at the big picture.

It helps to see the forest from time to time.

Other times, getting to the next tree is all I’m concerned about.

Zoom in.

Focus on the next step.

Let the destination take care of itself.

Just make progress.

Just take the next step.
