I would agree with gmmurgirl. As the hindi proverb says "boond boond se saagar bhare". It means that every drop of water contributes to the water of the ocean. Every step we take each day takes us one step closure to our long term goals.
As for myself, I believe each work i do everyday takes me closure to the long term dreams i have set for myself. I may get lazy on a short term like taking a break or relaxing but on a long term ... I am not lazy.
