Kendrick Lamar is one of the most highly influential hip-hop artist right now. His insight on life, in general, is second to none. Last year, I heard a line from a single by Rapper Schoolboy Q “Blessed Featuring Kendrick Lamar” where Kendrick says “don’t neglect your respect for the progress of a baby step.” To this day, this sticks with me as one of my favorite lines. It speaks volumes to so much of our lives here in 2016, where everyone wants everything right now, shortcuts included. We don’t want to work hard anymore, we want to find the fastest way to get from point A to point Z. Not one goal was ever made without the progress of a baby step, so why run from that progress? Embrace that progress and reach great feats in your quest to be successful.
