Bridging Our Gaps

My brother, Kevin, sent me the other evening the following quote of Jim Rohn: “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”  The quote reminded me of the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge back in the mid 1930’s.  A small group of individuals back then could visualize a bridge that would span the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean; it would be over 1 mile in length.  While many thought it couldn’t be accomplished, the visionaries were driven to achieve their desired outcome. They began construction of the bridge by laying one plank after another between the two land masses.   It took 4 years for them to bridge their gap.

How do we bridge our gaps between who we are and who we want to be or between our goals and desired outcomes?  I suggest to you that we do it like they built the Golden Gate Bridge – one moment at a time in the present.   I believe we link our moments of the present, like they linked the the planks used for the initial building of the Golden Gate Bridge, to provide bridges between who we are or want to become and between our goals and our accomplishmentsThey can be our “Rareyfying Moments” in life.


May you have many wonderful moments in the present during the coming New Year!
