Just keep swimming
Too often we forget that progress is made in stretches. We don't have to hit a home run to reach home plate.
Even small advances get us where we need to go. The key is to step up, make a decision, and execute.
The idea that little things can provide big effects was tested in 1963 with what’s called the Butterfly Effect.
The question? Could the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Singapore affect a hurricane in North Carolina? The answer? Yes.
