Let us watch well our beginnings and results will manage themselves. (19th century U.S. Ambassador)

We often focus on the goal, what we want the end of our project to look like. We do always have to keep the end in mind, of course. We have to determine how to get there, what’s involved in the process; what resources we will need along the way. The success or failure in our venture will be based on all those things, but the really essential issue is, how do we begin?

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. (Philippians 1:6)
