Sometimes standing still is not a wise option, whereas taking each step before us represents the best way forward.
Taking each step before us and with a belief in our ability to reach our goal, need not be viewed as being ‘better than nothing’.
Focusing attention, itself a rare quality in many respects if the mindless actions all around us are an indicator of events, is akin to taking each step before us. The emphasis of our efforts is clear and we are moving in a decisive manner.
In a perfect world, we will be certain of where the steps before us lead to. Unfortunately, or not depending on the perspective, surprises occur. What starts as an intention to reach point B may end up getting us to point C, D or Z.
Action, in any case, is the key to progress once strategic intentions have been clarified and used to create tactical plans for their eventual realization.
Reading back these last few lines, this seems to imply we are discussing a major military campaign as opposed to a pleasant embracing of opportunities before us. Maybe the moment feels intense although, as ever, it is ours to live in the manner most befitting our values, goals and outlook in general.
