Steps are pretty important when it comes to getting from one level of a building to another. Otherwise, we’d be jumping and climbing a lot.
Our guys are installing new steps on our stage, and as they work on it, it reminds me that every journey takes steps. If the steps are planned out and laid out carefully, these steps are easy to make. If on the other hand, the steps are haphazard, you’re going to be working more than you should to accomplish less than you want to.
Steps should be 1) simple, 2) clear, and 3) direct. When you’re climbing to the next floor or to a stage, you don’t want a meandering path. You want to get where you’re going.
