Just the next step

Just take the next step is such a great philosophy for life.

You don’t have to know every step of the way.

Many of us hesitate, procrastinate and find reasons why the approach we’re considering won’t work so we wait until we’ve got it all worked out.

Even when we’re considering the path to take, we stand at the crossroads weighing up our different options trying to work out which is the best, or the perfect, one. We wait and wait and wait because we don’t want to get it wrong.

What’s the worst that can happen if we do get it wrong? In most cases it’s not a life or death situation. If it is, then it probably would be advisable to take a little time to consider, if you have that luxury.

But most decisions are not matters of life and death, they are not even irreversible; we can usually retrace our steps if we find we’re down the wrong path and we decide to take another one.

There is a fundamental power in choosing and moving, in just taking the next step, however small it is, even if you’ve no idea what the next step after that is.

Being in motion generates new energy.

Being in motion refreshes and generates creativity, new ideas, and positive thoughts.

It’s like, “OK, so we’re off, we’re on the move, where we end up maybe we don’t know, but that just makes it an adventure”, and I don’t know about you but I love an adventure!
