Going Forward

Researching and learning new things takes time. Often it is two steps forward and one step back. We learn in little bits and pieces.

Being willing to learn is the first step. Being willing to fail is also an important piece of learning new things.

Remember a journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step.

This is a best of post from 2009

I love this post and I can see why Terry lists it again as a best of post from 2009. This brief post sums up so much of what is important in life. Just take the first step and be willing to fail in the learning process. This is what I'm having a hard time doing now so it is excellent advice, not just for me, but all the readers of Terry's blog. To me it also dovetails nicely with the Serenity Prayer of acceptance. Acceptance is very high, paramount spiritual principle - among the most divine and yet one of the most challenging. It is so difficult to accept our situation so that we can take that first step toward recovery, growth, organization and getting things done. Thank you, Terry!
