Taking One Step At a Time

You want to make this and that. You think up new ideas for products or services one after the next. For that to happen, you need money, people and so on. Your ambitions are incessant. But to reach those goals, you need to take one step at a time. That’s the only way. The ladder to a goal is built of a collection of single steps. Take each step using no gimmicks or artifice, and you will eventually reach the pinnacle. The people you seek will increase in number gradually to the tens of thousands. We have to think in humble terms of the essence of taking one step at a time.
