Rocking before Rolling
I'm reading a book by Judy Tillman titled "Stroke of Insight". She is a brain scientest who had a massive stroke, and survived to write this very detailed book about that experience. In describing the first few days after her stroke, she tells about her desire to recover physically, and on this particular day, her desire to simply sit up. But before she can even think about sitting up, she has to learn to roll over. And it takes every ounce of her energy and determination to rock back and forth to gain enough momemtum to roll over.
Her conclusion is that if her goal had been sitting up, she would have been defeated immediately. By setting a goal first to rock, and then second to roll, and then third to eventually sit up, she was able to accomplish one goal at a time...leading to sitting up finally.
So focus on "rocking" with your house, before "rolling" with it.
