Thinking about baby steps has really been helping me to keep things in perspective. I have been working towards opening a new yoga studio space with my dear friend, Josette Cicacci, the past 2 months and things could not be crazier.
There is a long list of things to do and learn. Ugh think technology! Technology and I have a hate-hate relationship. But with baby steps things have been progressing slowly and steadily. This is huge for me.
While I have been going though this process, it's been very helpful to have someone to keep me honest and to check in with, just like a child who is learning to walk needs that support from someone else. Who could be your check in person?
Baby steps allow you to move slowly and carefully and to adjust to things as they come your way. Children learning to walk.... fall, get back up, just to fall again, over and over. They also realize when it's better to keep crawling to get to that goal more quickly and when they should stay on their feet.
When you are doing something/anything new, I think this is the best approach. Before your brain or body gets overloaded, take a break. Get back up and then continue on with the baby steps.
This could be applied to anything really....starting or pushing ahead with a new business venture, eating healthier, exercising more, saving money, learning something new, whatever.
What baby steps are you taking today to make your dreams come true or life better?
When you add all those baby steps up in a week or month or year, you might be surprised by how far you have come!
