Looking at a big pile of firewood earlier today, I thought “Oh God, how am I going to get all of this stacked?” Then I remembered a song: “High Hopes” about the ant moving a rubber tree plant. So I felt like that ant for awhile, slowly, slowly working through the pile.

Baby steps.

This is really the way to effectively make any progress, and any changes, in life. Slowly, bit by bit, until we reach our goal. Weight loss, debt reduction, decluttering, writing a book, starting and maintaining meaningful relationships, homework, building a business. See how many areas of life where this baby step process can be used to get where you want to be. And, don’t forget to have High Hopes.
