"Life, I've found, works the following way: Daily, you're presented with many small and surprising opportunities. Sometimes you seize one that takes you to the top. Most, though, if valuable at all, take you only a little way. To succeed, you must string together many small incremental advances - rather that count on hitting the lottery jackpot once."
Small, incremental advances are the way most lives evolve whether one is doing yoga, running a small business, creating friendships, or developing a life-long relationship.
