OK so I’m 50. Did I mention that?

And something that I have noticed as I have accumulated years and experience is this.

All gaps are steps, not leaps.

You may have to read that twice.

I did.

And I wrote it.


Anyhow; it’s true.

A ‘gap’ in the context of this story is the space between where you are and where you want to be.

Thinner, fatter, richer, less busy, more busy – whatever.

I have honestly found that when I calm down, stop worrying, think clearly and plan – the gap between where I am and where I want to be is nowhere near as big as I thought.

And it is always a step, not a leap.

I say ‘step’ because it doesn’t require two feet off the ground – a leap – to do anything new.

No matter how significant, it’s always a step, not a leap. Because you always take someone or something with you. It’s never completely new.

Steps are OK. One foot is always rooted where you came from.

So there you go. Whatever it is, give it a go!

Take the step.

The gap between ‘here’ and ‘there’ is always smaller than you think.
