This quote from Lao Tzu, founder of Taoism and author of the Tao Te Ching, is a good one to remember when we’re trying to accomplish anything. We often think the best approach is to devote large chunks of time to the things we feel are important, but a little effort every day can have a greater impact.

You need to use the steps.
