When working on a project, it takes time, effort and different steps before seeing it to completion. Knowing what the big picture is helps, but so does being able to be in the moment, working on every step with patience and enthusiasm. I liken it to doing hot yoga: While I know that my big picture after a 60 to 90-minute class is me feeling healthier, refreshed and in a better mood, the 26 asanas yet to be performed can be challenging. The only way I can get to my big picture is to do every asana with full concentration. Then before I know it, the class is done.
Today, whatever that step is towards your big picture, take it and enjoy doing it well.
