The sheer truth of this phrase makes it simply impossible to overuse. No matter how big a task may be, no matter who difficult it is to finish, you won’t get there unless you take that first step. But that first step cannot be your last. You must take a second, and a third, and a fourth, and so on, and so on. You can make that thousand mile journey, and all you have to do is take it one step at a time.
