(from freedictionary.com)
You just never know.  You just never know how what you are doing today might do for you later.  It can go both positively or negatively, but you just never know.
There are just way too many stories of people giving their all at doing something and it leads to even greater opportunity.  Just because I went to one meeting, I was able to get some money to start a doctorate.  I happened to seemingly randomly meet a person – which just triggers some amazing events in my life to some incredible experiences in my life.  You might take a job that leads you to be at the place where you meet your spouse.  You don’t want to miss out on that.
You just never know where you will go because you are doing what you are doing right now.  I do know this – if you don’t do anything, you’ll never go anywhere.  So if you’re deciding to make that movie – be a movie maker.  If you’re afraid to write that thing you were called to write – be a writer.  If you’re afraid to ask that person – ask.  If you are waiting for permission – here it is – go ahead and just do it.  You never know where it’s going to lead you.
For me it’s my blog – or my podcast – or a book proposal that I’m working on – or where I’m teaching – you just never know.
