“Progress is not inevitable. It’s up to us to create it.” Anonymous


I was walking through an historic town yesterday that is made up of the rustic and romantic cobblestone streets of yore. Just being in town made me feel like I had time-traveled back to the American Revolution. I felt like I could hear the clippity-clop of horses hooves along the stones. And even though cobblestone is absolutely beautiful, it’s challenging to walk on and even more painful to drive on.


Eventually, for many reasons, cobblestone fell out of favor and Belgian block (rectangle stone laid out in a pattern) became commonplace. It was progress. The cobblestone served it’s purpose, but someone imagined something better. I doubt ripping up all the streets, some of which were bound in mortar, was easy, but a flat “paved” road was going to be progress for everyone. All travel would be easier and faster.


Look around at your life, where is there cobblestone? Progress is not inevitable—it’s up to us to create it. Progress, by definition is: forward or onward movement toward a destination. What is the destination? What do you want to be better, more fulfilling, more joyful, more fun, or something else? The real question I am asking you is, “What do you want?” Progress toward that end means we need to bravely take the first step!


Let’s GO! WE GOT THIS!
