The following is part of my Mountain Biker Musings collection. I use a biking metaphor here but I think it applies to any endeavor. I hope you like it.
You’re slogging up a long hill
Notice your heart pounding
Right now you’re on the hill
The next now you’re still on the hill but a little farther
All of the little nows add up to…
Keep plugging away up that hill
Every position is right now
Hey, you’re doing great right now!
How about one more now?
It’s not so hard to be there right now
One more pedal stroke and, well, look at that, it’s now!
This isn’t so bad at all
And before you know it, you’re now at the top of the hill
