Principle: Keep going

principle of keep going – phr. refers to the act of moving, no matter how big or small, nor how wide or narrow

Things to Note

1. Whether things go your way or it does not, you got to keep going.

2. When it is going your way, you direct your movement towards the destination.

3. When it is not going your way, you resolve why it is not going your way.

4. In a few cases, the destination may have to be altered or a stop may have first to be made.

5. Without movement, you drift along life at the mercy of the ebb and flow of time and circumstances.


You don’t have to get it right. You just have to get it going.
