    To me, learning the Collab system and process has been like waking up one morning and from being a squirmy fish flopping around in the shallows, finding that I now have a set of feet, and can see a path open up, step by step, all the way to as far as I can see. The path may be difficult and hard, but I’ve got the ability to move forward and make progress!

      Hi Noemi,
      That’s really a great way to put it. I love this encouraging statement because its a reminder that we can only move incrementally forward.. in other words, one step at a time! Thanks for this.
