How do you get from Point A to B when you’re riding a bike?
Do you keep both feet on the pedals while you figure it out?
Do you focus on your every move as you pedal slow and steady to make sure that you know what you’re doing?
Do you just sit and watch other people riding their bike and by observing them magically learn how to ride it?
Most of the time we refuse to take a step towards anything unless we can be sure that we’re not going to repeat a previous mistake, we’re not making a mistake, or we’re not about to make a new mistake.
All this anticipation and planning masked as preparation can take a toll on you and cost you time and effort if you focus on the insignificant and the uncontrollable.
You know what the solution is? Keep moving.
Keep moving and what’s behind you will be too far to even look back on.
Keep moving and what needs to happen right now will fall into place.
Keep moving and what’s ahead of you will reveal itself eventually.
But remember, all of this will be useless if you’re not moving in the right direction.
Just make sure you’re moving forward.
