Buddha said that a jug is filled drop by drop. Completion of a goal does not occur immediately, it requires patience and dedication (that classic of how one gets to Carnegie Hall comes to mind). The more you move, the more muscles grow, the more calories are burned, the more the heart beats. Many Americans do not move, they remain sedentary, the complete opposite of progress, the inverse of living. We are a fat nation, the fattest and sickest, and we rely on pharmaceuticals as a safety net.
