Begin a Journey of One-Thousand Miles

When you were a child, did your parents force you to take piano lessons? But you hated them and quit as soon as you could.  And now you wish you stuck with it? Think about all of the activities that you’ve started and never followed through with – or never started at all.  Imagine how good you would be if you just kept at those piano lessons.  It’s staggering.

Now think about all of the things that you’ve always wanted to learn – a language, a skill, a hobby.  What is the one thing that you most wish you knew how to do?

Pick that thing and start learning it.

Pretty intimidating right?  There’s so much to learn. It would take so much time.  How can I possibly do all this? The phrase comes to mind – a journey of one thousand miles begins with one step.  It’s just like the piano lessons.  You start off pretty bad or worse.  It’s embarrassing. You don’t want anyone to know about it. You’re vulnerable.  But imagine ten years from now, how amazing you’ll be. How accomplished you’ll feel. How glad that you committed to learning that thing that you really want to learn.

Maybe just practice in a sound proof room for a while.
