Smaller Steps

When a marine in training can’t hit the target with his rifle, moving him closer first, then back little by little, proves to close the gap in his aim.

When my son couldn’t catch a running football in motion, we slowed it down to one step & catch, then a few walking steps & catch, then a slow jog & catch … until he got it.

When I was looking to reduce my coffee intake, I simply added one glass of water per day at first. Just one glass. A few months later, I was down from eight cups of coffee per day, to one.

These are just a few examples of breaking down larger challenges into smaller steps.

There aren’t any magic wands.

Just consistent actions that move you forward.
