A favorite move at the Davis house is “Night at the Museum”. In it they tell the Sacajawea story.

They talked about all the hardships and the enormous scope of their journey.

I think if we could ask someone like that from history what they were thinking about as they completed their epic journey or surmounted impossible odds the answer would interesting in its simplicity.

They would probably say things like:

I said I was going to do it, so I just didn’t quit.

Going forward just seemed better than quitting.

I didn’t really think about it at the time, we were having so much fun.

It seemed like something worth trying.

What they say maybe betrays part of what can hold us back from time to time. We make things too complicated. We try to climb the whole mountain in one day. We quit.

Whatever is on your goal list for this year, make a simple commitment today. Take the next step. However small that might be. However imperfect it feels. Just keep going.

Make it a great day.
