Take the first step in order for the next step to appear.
We live in a world of indefinite planning, so much so that you often forget which direction to
take. To plan is good, but to spend all your time in that is nothing short of daydreaming. Your
plans have to be evident in the steps you take. That means you have to take the first step.
In life, every step cannot be planned, but an outline can be created. You have the overall picture
with you to get you going. The directions are laid out, but improvisations are not frowned upon.
Details are added on at every step making use of the best available resources at that point of
time as against being stuck in the past. This makes your vision become a reality sooner than
Indefinite planning never let you take the first step, to begin with. Having all your energy
expended on what you think is planning makes the whole process a redundant exercise. Do not
be adamant, but be adaptive without losing sight of the original vision. Never forget that it is the
vision that made you take the first step.
If you go on planning without putting into practice, you will have nothing worthwhile to look
forward to. You will be overpowered by the feeling of helplessness over a mundane existence.
