"All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man had taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first."
It's important to remember to never stop half way on our journey of personal development, growth, professional progress. We must keep adding more each day to our knowledge and experience by seeking new opportunities to enhance and build on top of an existing knowledge foundation. As long as we are adding to such foundation, we are growing, we are moving forward, and we get closer to reaching our personal and professional goals that we've committed to accomplishing. It doesn't matter how fast or how slow is the progress that we are creating, what matters is that we keep trying, keep moving forward, overcoming problems and obstacles, and in turn creating forward progress vs. standing still in our comfort zone.
