I don’t know where I am going, but I am on my way. ~ Carl Sandburg
And a step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction. ~ Kurt Vonnegut
Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. ~ C.S. Lewis
Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb. ~ Winston Churchill
To reach a port we must set sail –
Sail, not tie at anchor
Sail, not drift. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
Restlessness is discontent — and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man — and I will show you a failure. ~ Thomas A. Edison
There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment. ~ Marcus Tulllius Cicero
Well, I always know what I want. And when you know what you want–you go toward it. Sometimes you go very fast, and sometimes only an inch a year. Perhaps you feel happier when you go fast. I don’t know. I’ve forgotten the difference long ago, because it really doesn’t matter, so long as you move. ~ Ayn Rand
Remember, progress comes in all sizes! Any amount is a good thing!
