Whenever we set out to achieve something or create something, we have to build it from the ground up. That means putting down a foundation. The foundation is created one step at a time, patiently and consistently. This applies to everything in life, including getting through school, building a relationship, developing a career, or healing an illness.
It is often challenging to accomplish things, because we keep our eyes on the end result instead of the process. Therefore, it is helpful to map things out and to chronicle our progress.
