It's been said that anything worth doing is worth doing right. And what is right, in our books, is to use baby steps to achieve our goals. With anything, there are always steps to learn something. We don't just know how to do algebra. First, we learn our numbers, then adding, subtracting, multiplication and division. Then we get weird and start adding letters in. In order to be really good at advanced math, we have to master the basics first. Think of a marathon runner - they don't just become one overnight. As a baby, they start by pulling themselves around, then crawling, and finally, they take their first step. Once they are older and the desire to become a runner is born they start with small distances and build up stamina for greater lengths and durations. We have found the same theory applies to most any goals - personal or in dog training. Look at the end game and then break it down. What are the little steps that make up the big picture? Not sure how to do this?
