“… few people actually receive big calls, in visions of flaming chariots and burning bushes. Most of the calls we receive and ignore are … the daily calls to pay attention to our intuitions, to be authentic, to live by our own codes of honor.
Our lives are measured out … not in the grand sweeps but in the small gestures. The great breakthroughs in our lives generally happen only as a result of the accumulation of innumerable small steps and minor achievements. We’re called to reach out to someone, to pick up an odd book on the library shelf, to sign up for a class even though we’re convinced we don’t have the time or money, to go to our desks each day, to turn left instead of right.
These are the fire drills for our bigger calls.” Gregg Levoy
