Life is full of holes

Life is full of holes:
Every scrutinized historical event fails to hold up to serious inspection.
There's missing evidence. How did he get from point A to point B? Where's the document or the eyewitness or the proof?
Your future opportunities are like this as well. Even at the hottest part of the 1998 Internet run up, skeptics wanted more proof that the internet wasn't merely a waste of time. They wanted all the dots connected, and were happy to keep collecting dots until they were.
For a train to get from one city to another, it makes countless tiny leaps, crossing microscopic chasms that would easily show up if you looked closely enough. That doesn't keep you from getting there, though.
I don't think the right question is, "is the path perfect?"
It's probably, "Is this somewhere I'd like to go?"
It's significantly easier to cross a gap when you have direction and momentum.
