Recipes for the Soul ...
\"Walk with your slippers until you can find your shoes.\" - Sicilian proverb
\"One Step At A Time\"
Mother Nature has all the answers. She knows toddlers must crawl before they can walk and birds must grow before they can fly. But as adults, we often forget these simple lessons. To keep up with others, we often try to run before we can walk, and then get frustrated if we stumble. Slow down. You might actually get there faster.
Simple Steps ...
* Follow the directions. For instance, if you\'re learning a new software program, take the time to really understand it. In the long run, you will be able to get more out of it.
* A great way to \"walk before you run\" is to focus on the process of what you are doing, not the outcome. Get it done right - then you can get it done fast.
