“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~ Confucius
Surely one of the most famous of Confucius‘ sayings, this is a metaphor for life. When an undertaking seems daunting, impossible, overwhelming… breaking it down into small steps makes it easier to start. You just have to take the first one, it’s small and easy and not too scary… and then the next and the next after that… and before too long, you’re half way there! A few steps more and the end is in sight… and suddenly, you’ve done it!
I’m very much a step by step planner, breaking big projects down into distinct and achievable tasks, so this quote really resonates with me!
This pretty staircase is in Monzaraz, a stunningly beautiful hilltop town in Portugal’s Alentejo region, with white-washed buildings and cobbled lanes.
