Imagine walking along an outdoor trail during the middle of a pitch-black night. You’re a few hundred feet from your campground, and you have only a small flashlight to illuminate the path in front of you. Provided you know which way to go, it would be foolish to sit down and wait for the sun to rise—allowing you to see all the way to your campground—before continuing on your way. So long as you’re moving in the right direction, it does not matter that you can only see a few feet in front of you. To get where you want do go, you only have to take one step at a time.
As a leader, don’t expect to understand everything that’s required to see your vision come to fruition. Just take the next step. Too many people hesitate to begin because they cannot comprehend the entire journey.
People love to talk about their dreams; they come alive when they share their hopes for the future. However, a dream remains fanciful until you pursue it, in small ways, during your everyday routine. The daily things you do determine whether your dreams come true.
