“It’s like being at base camp and looking up at an unconquerable mountain; can’t dwell on the difficulty, you have to just start the journey, One step follows the next which leads the way to the next. There will be missteps but as long as the vision is whole, the mountain will fall.”

I found the quote on Pitchfork.
I want to road test an idea. For a number of reasons doing a lot of thinking and development around leadership and vision right now.

Let me know your thoughts.
This is a little thought I wrote for Thursday Threads, a devotional email from Threads UK. Its about some things I’ve been thinking through regarding ambition and effort.
