Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both.

Pathway to achievement

The best way to figure out how to do something is to do it. Make the commitment to make it happen, and you’ll start working your way through the details.

Don’t get bogged down speculating on how something will come about. Instead, get started on the best approach you have, and follow the path wherever it may lead.

When traveling along a road, you can never see the entire road at once, but that doesn’t really matter. What does matter is successfully making your way through the portion of the road that is right in front of you.

Work through the things that are to be done right now, and you’ll put yourself in position to handle the things that come along later. Travel down this section of the road, and you’ll then be able to travel the next section, and the next.

If you put all your energy into worrying about every little detail of how to reach your goal, you won’t ever get started. Instead, put your energy into reminding yourself why you have chosen to go there, and then do whatever it takes along the way.

You’ll never know precisely how something is to be done until you actually do it. So go ahead, get started, and discover your own unique pathway to achievement.
