Before a dam wall breaks, there’s a drip.

Then another drip.

And another drip.

Eventually, water starts gushing through the gap.

It’s like the well known story of the stonecutter.

He repeatedly hits the stone.

Over and over again.

He doesn’t know how many hits it will take, but he knows that if he continues, eventually the stone will break in half.

In many sporting contests, you can see something similar.

One team applies pressure and is halted.

They keep coming and are stopped again.

But if they keep going with the same intensity, eventually the dam wall breaks and they start to score more freely.

And there are our goals.

We won’t get there with one small action.

Or two.

But after 10, 100, 1000, eventually you will get the breakthrough that we are looking for.

Drip.

Drip.

Drip.

Gush.
