Have you ever walked down a set of stairs and tripped, skipped a step, or fell straight forward? Damn vanishing steps. Heck, it’s not just when you go down steps, I am sure you have tripped, stubbed your toe and fell forward going up the steps too. No matter the design or direction of steps, when they are taken, there are always some that seem to vanish.
It’s unlikely for you to make a realization as you are grabbing on for your dear life, but have you ever taken a moment after hitting that vanishing step to realize that you actually got to the bottom of the stairs quicker than if it had not vanished? Again, the same goes for if you were heading up the stairs. All the sudden you are either forced to take a jump to the bottom of the steps or army crawl your way up the stairs, both ways you get to where you are going quicker.
Taking it a step further (pardon the pun), what if you applied this same heart wrenching moment of a vanishing step into the goals in your life? What if you strayed away from doing it by the book, following all the rules, and taking all the steps? What if, maybe, just maybe, some steps vanished?
