My housemate Niall made me aware of the importance of taking Baby Steps along your path of achievement and evolution. Any step in the right direction is a step in the right direction, no matter how small. And quite often, baby steps take you further faster because they are less intimidating and easier to achieve. Feeling the need to take a big step can bring about a period of procrastination which keeps you stuck where you are. However, after only a few months of taking baby steps, you can look back on your life and see that a big change has occurred very gradually and comfortably.
If you do have a big goal (emotional, financial, physical, etc.), ask yourself what small steps you can take towards it. Take them when you can, and know that you are moving ever closer to the accomplishment of your dreams and desires.
