little acorns grow big oaks


It's not often that when I step into an ordinary taxi, I get extraordinary advice.
Normally it's either weather chat or how busy your day was.
But during a 10 minute journey I had with this lovely taxi driver, I felt at home and welcomed into his worn cabby world for all but a few minutes.

After talking about where I had been, we got onto the topic of new beginnings and persevering when you find things tough. After a moment of silence, he said

In other words, making little steps towards your goals will lead to a big result in the end.No matter where you are in life you can take little steps towards what you want. Even if you never quite reach the end goal how you thought you would. If you step back and look at the bigger picture, you have this culmination of little actions that have made a great big heap of effort and in fact, you will realise that you have done a great deal.

All of these actions will create momentum and if you keep up with your enthusiasm and motivate yourself to continue. Who knows where it will take you.

All the work you are doing know can be used in the future.
Never give up. Do it for yourself. Your future self.

    1. Me too, it can be easy to loose sight of what you have done. For example I had to make an actual list, but its helped me a great deal.

  2. True, the big picture can seem daunting but small actions at regular time can yield big results! I have finally gathered the right momentum and I'm leaving for Paris this weekend for a work placement!
