One Step Ahead

I have a confession to make. Actually two confessions.

I have never considered myself a runner, but in the last 6 months, I’ve been running more often, and more miles, and even having days where I don’t want to stop. And I look forward to running every morning. I think that means I’m becoming a runner.

I also have never considered myself a writer, but as I write documents for work, blogs for work, and this blog, I’m realizing how enjoyable and therapeutic it can be. Guess you know what that means…

But neither of these goals has come quickly. In fact, both are the result of a series of small steps. Baby steps.

It’s not always the giant leaps that get you ahead, but just small, steady forward motion.

Which gets me thinking about what other goals I should be moving forward. Instead of being bogged down with the latest and loudest and ignoring other things, what small next action could I take to make progress on other things?

I think that will be my focus this week – baby steps. Rather than be head down in the most urgent project or task, I will look for opportunities to move ahead on other stalled projects and goals.

What projects or goals could you move ahead with baby steps?
