I was reminded of an riddle from my childhood:
“How far can you walk in the woods?”
“One step…then you are walking out.”
Go ahead and roll your eyes, but it was thought provoking when I was a child. Think about it though, one step can make a difference.
- Miss one step on a staircase and you can trip or fall or worse. I have the distinction of being able to trip and/or fall without ever missing a step.
- What happens when you “miss your mouth” when drinking coffee? You get scalded and stained.
- Miss your exit on the interstate and you have to go WAY out of your way.
- Miss one step of a recipe…..
One step can make a huge difference. There was a point to make here, but I missed the step of writing it down first. Go figure.
