Foundations, Next Steps, and Words (oh my!)

“Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme. Succeeding is the coming together of all that is beautiful. Furtherance is the agreement of all that is just. Perseverance is the foundation of all actions.” Lao Tzu

 

So I have officially been unemployed for 7 days now. I feel like in those 7 days, I have worked harder than the last 7 weeks. Packing out my 1988 Chevy Nova, moving everything that wouldn’t fit in the Nova into storage, as well as just the drive from Florida to Atlanta was intense. I took the weekend to crash, think, and prepare myself mentally and physically for the next step.

 

Speaking of Next Step, that seems to be the buzzword for 2016. Yes, we need to have an ordered list of goals and how to get there, but we can almost get lost in that list. I don’t want to just “know” what the next step is, I want to do the next step. And the next step.

 

That almost perfectly describes what I am in Atlanta so far. Next steps. Setting Goals. Achieving things. It has been slow yes, but progress is rarely ever fast. This is the foundation.
