When building anything of substantive value, it is imperative to begin by laying a solid foundation. Despite having well-designed plans and the finest materials, inattention to what we’re building upon is catastrophic. Forging a solid bedrock ensures all effort that follows is appropriately aimed. Looking to the final product vice where one is standing can lead to building in sand. A couple hard life storms, heavy verbal winds, and a lot of excessive traffic, things erode, wash out, and our masterpiece risks collapse. Dedicating time and energy into perfectly crafting the substructure enables our efforts to last a lifetime. Brilliance in the basics. No foundational building block overlooked. Every step seen and its importance recognized. The simple, yet oftentimes assumed, allows us to build a lasting reality of the vision we see.
