Hello World

Remember how it all began?


Hello World
Hello World
Hello World
Hello World
Hello World
...

And the world’s reply?

Nothing. Null. Nada. Tumble-weed.

But I’m not worried. That’s how greatness starts!

  • Number 1 on Einstein‘s list of achievements was learning to count.
  • Once upon a time even Tolkien had to learn his ABCs.
  • The first step to success for Roger Bannister was learning to walk.

We all have to start somewhere.

As the wise have said:

  • Despise not the day of small beginnings
  • Every journey begins with a single step
  • Rome wasn’t built in a day

There are, then, just two things that make up greatness:

  • The courage to get started
  • The tenacity to keep getting better

So, here I go:

  • I’ll do something worthwhile today
  • I’ll aim to do it better than I did it yesterday
  • And in so doing I’ll learn something for tomorrow

In the mean time, I raise a glass to you, “Hello world”.

It may seem childish now, but it will grow up soon enough.
