Keep Your Feet on the Ground

The wheel is one of man's greatest tool ever invented and it is considered as a leg of creativity. But no matter what kind of wheels one may be having as tool, when it comes to keeping one's own feet on the ground (meaning to say: being very practical and see things as they really are), it is more a matter of will than wheels.

“Be practical as well as generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground.” ―Theodore Roosevelt

"Becoming a force of nature doesn't mean that all of our aspirations must be grand. First steps are often small, and initial visions that focus energy effectively often address immediate problems. What matters is engagement in the service of a larger purpose rather than lofty aspirations that paralyze action. Indeed, it's a dangerous trap to believe that we can pursue only great visions." --Peter Senge

Don't discount the practicality of some small things. Even the biggest of trees practically begins with a tiny seed. The scripture put it this way:

[Luke 13:18-21] Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? To what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and put in his own garden. It grew, and became a large tree, and the birds of the sky lodged in its branches.” Again he said, “To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God? It is like yeast, which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until it was all leavened.”
