I won! I actually won! (Woo hoo!)
So, what now? My long wait is over and I’m no longer frozen to the spot. But I’m still feeling the cold through my feet. It’s at this point I realise I’m going in the right direction, but I’m approaching it in the wrong way. I make small, progressive steps, then pause to look around me, even looking backwards. I’m hesitating about the next step, unsure of when to move. I feel off-balance, unsteady, like I need some additional support. Can I do this? Turning back feels like a choice, but that would only get me back to the start, and all those previous steps wouldn’t count.
My path is made of stepping stones. They have natural pauses and when you go too slowly you lose your flow. If you hesitate at the wrong moment, you stumble into the water, and your feet get cold and wet.
It’s far better to take quick, successive steps. That way you build momentum, and your sure-footedness increases with every stride.
Lesson 4: Hesitate on a path of stepping stones and you risk losing your balance. Keep a smooth, steady pace until you reach the other side, and only then pause for breath, reflect back and prepare for the next one.
