Davidisms - Inch by Inch, Life's a Cinch

Do you want to succeed in life? If so, you’ll find that most success happens by doing the small things regularly. Daily. Faithfully. One step at a time. Once you’ve disciplined yourself to attend to small daily tasks, over time you’ll find that you’ve actually achieved your goals - and maybe more! All genuine success in life takes time. It’s not immediate. Sudden. Out of nowhere. Instead, it’s achieved step by step. Day by day. Month by month. Year by year. And it’s through these small steps done faithfully that sterling successes and lasting legacies are built. On the contrary, don’t bite off more than you can chew! This introduces another Davidism: Yard by yard, life is hard. A dream can become overwhelming if you’re preoccupied with all the things that must be done. You can become daunted. Anxious. Overwhelmed. So remember: Keep the end in mind, but keep your eyes on what’s directly in front of you. On what you need to do on this day to move forward, even if only by an inch. The prophet Zechariah encouraged us to embrace days of small beginnings (4:10). It was his way of saying: Inch by inch, life’s a cinch.
