“A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.” –Lao-tzu
New endeavors can be challenging. No matter what you choose to do in life, you cannot achieve the final result without beginning. You cannot write a book without writing the first word. You cannot complete a marathon without taking the first step.
Sometimes the first step is a small one—choosing what you want for breakfast. Other times it is a big step—deciding where to go to college. Each time you have to make a decision and begin walking.
Today I take the first step in a new journey—a journey of learning and growing. Learning is not new to me, as I have participated in both formal and informal learning throughout my life.
You may wonder what I changed about my learning journey. My learning journey has changed because I made the decision to open it up to others through this blog. In the past, I have shared my thoughts, my ideas, and my learning with colleagues. By writing this blog I hope to extend my learning circle. By sharing my learning, I hope to help others grow, too.
I realize helping others grow is an ambitious vision considering this is my first blog post. Yet, I will take the first step and see where it goes.
