Making a change is a process

I saw the below on a message board I really like and it makes so much sense to me. 

 

AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS
By Portia NelsonChapter I
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter II
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in… It’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter IV
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter V
I walk down another street.
