Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Reality doesn’t care how big your dreams are

Why should we keep trying to fulfill our dreams by small amounts of – apparently – unsuccessful small actions?

You can spend all your energy running as fast as you can, or digging a big hole on the expectation for establishing the foundations of something great and meaningful. But most of us never get that chance.

What we can do is keep walking, no matter how small our steps are. Or punch a small hole every day on the barriers that though times build around our heart, with consistency and resilience, to allow the flow of life.

In time, you’ll look behind and see how far you’ve gone. Or look around you and see the ground upon which you, or others after you, can build upon.

There is no secret to fulfill your dreams. The only thing I feel we have is the opportunity opened by small consistent steps toward the goals our dreams inspire.

Reality is built by great people wise enough to count on every small step.
