How do you climb a mountain?
With planning and persistence. One step at a time.
Ascending to the summit takes time, but that’s a detail that we tend to forget when we are scaling our own personal mountains, be they building a business, overcoming a habit or learning a new skill.
The desire for instant gratification explains why the diet pill industry is booming. But we all know, deep in our heart of hearts, that lasting change takes time, effort and diligence.

Itís a visual world and images touch us in a direct, visceral way unlike text can alone. They make us happy, they make us laugh, they make us inspired ó they can also make us deeply sad ó all in just a fleeting glance.

Fewer overhead costs also means less energy used. You’re the boss, so you have the right to decide that you’ll recycle daily or send vendors paperless bills.

Can you tell when you are in the middle of overcoming challenges? How can you detect strength or capacity building as it is happening? Where is the contrast between where you’ve been and when you’ve learned?
