“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” goes the popular expression attributed to Laozi from the Tao Te Ching.
Put another way, if you do a little bit every day, eventually you’ve done a lot.

I did this by committing to just a little bit every day: averaging just over 200 words a day.
This is a big number, and one I achieved without permission, authority, or assignment.
What else am I able to achieve, a little bit every day? What are you able to achieve?
