A Thousand Miles and a Single Step

The Journey of a Thousand Miles begins with a single step – Lao Tzu


This was most quoted to me after my mother had asked me to take out the trash for the third or fourth time back when I was a kid. Although it seems to be applied toward loftier goals than simply getting the trash out to the curb, the logic is sound; a little forward motion is required to get anywhere.

And so it goes with the things you want to accomplish. Dreaming, complaining or wishing does not accomplish the end of the dream, complaint or wish. Only doing brings any of those things to fruition. And doing has a starting point, that famous first step.

That first step into being an Everyday Revolutionary can take you out of your comfort zone, deep into uncharted territory. But that is still a start. It doesn’t have to be pretty, it has to be a start.  I would suggest that it’s most likely not going to be pretty, this out-of-the-comfort-zone, unchartered region, so that’s one less thing to worry about.

What ever change you have set your mind to undertake, begin. Even if you are unsure exactly the steps to take in the process, begin taking those steps. It’s easier to find the path from the front yard than it is the couch in the living room.

Take that first step!wandelen
