The Million Step Path

Oraline SalivaIt is said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Of course, after about fifty or two hundred and fifty steps, the road ahead still seems endless. It can be so easy to look at all of the progress you are supposed to make and think that it will never get done. It can be easy to just give up now before you waste all that time only going partway.

The truth is that the million step path does not need to seem so long. How do you keep from being discouraged?

In various twelve step programs intended to help alcoholics and drug addicts, the addicts are often told to take one day at a time. What does that mean? Does it mean that you have to give up on all of your wonderful future goals and plans? Does it mean that you have to only live in the moment and never think about tomorrow?

If you take one day at a time, then you are dealing with today’s problems right now, today. You are not looking for what tomorrow will bring when it comes to trouble. You can still plan for good things for tomorrow, but you are not worrying about what you will or will not do if something should arise.

The million step path is begun, completed, and finished by taking one step at a time, one right after the other.

Employee drug testing cannot determine how likely an employee is to keep abusing substances, but it can give you a photograph of what they are like right now. If a worker is abusing drugs or alcohol, then you will know about it, but you will not know how long they have been doing it or how long they may continue doing so in the future. You can only implement regular testing so that you can keep an eye on them and implement company policy if they do not adhere to your business guidelines.
