Anne Lamott in her book “Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life”, has written some amazing lines. They are so relevant to decision making in our business as they are to every walk to life.

Here they go. Read them once. Read them twice. Reflect. Read them again. Reflect once more.

E.L. Doctorow once said that “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.

You don’t have to see where you’re going, you don’t have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.” 

Likewise, James Clear, Author of Atomic Habits, has written “Many situations in life are similar to going on a hike: the view changes once you start walking.

You don’t need all the answers right now. New paths will reveal themselves if you have the courage to get started.”

The Secret is to get started (even when you don’t see your destination or everything you will pass along the way).
