Chapter 1, Page 16, Book 19

The first requirement in taking a step in the right direction is to take a step in some direction.

January 16- take a small step every day

Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now.

Jonatan Martensson

Sometimes our goals or dreams can seem overwhelming but by taking one small step at a time we achieved what we want. I try to live one step, one day at time.

By living life one day at a time, we can do most anything.  One day is all we are sure of any way and that day is today, so I’ll take a small step and make the most of today.   One small step is all it takes to get going.  On step will lead to another and before we know it we are making progress. 

One step, one day at a time, will take you a lot further if you know where you want to be and act as though you can get there!


One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.

One step at a time. I love that truism! This reminds me of a story my former pastor shared: An old clockmaker, preparing to set his pendulum in motion tasked the clock: You must tick every second, for every minute of every day, for every day of the year forever more. The clock was stunned, overwhelmed. How can I do that? It's too much! The old clockmaker smiled and said, "Just one tick at a time."

(OK, I probably messed that up in retelling, it's been a long time since I heard it.)

So true taking one step at a time can help us accomplish a lot of things, even things that seem overwhelming to pursue. We just need to get up and get going with it, no matter how slow it may take us to get there or to get it all done.

We found the Barbara Walters quote to be absolutely true, day after day on the Appalachian Trail. Good thoughts here.

I really try to do just that- live each day for the day and not worry about what is going to happen tomorrow or obsess over something wrong that happened yesterday. Great post! xo Diana
