In principle, we don’t need to know the whole plan in order to take the next step. To avoid a stumble we don’t need to see the whole path illuminated, just the next few feet.
As if carrying a lantern through the dark, if I take just one step at a time more will be revealed. The light moves with me.
Practical Tip: Just because you can’t see how everything is going to work out, don’t let that stop you from taking the next step. If your group seems stuck with uncertainty, ask, “What do we need to know just to take the next step?” Let that be enough for now. Take a step. As an individual, let go of needing to know everything and trust that your lantern will see you through.
