Taking Small Steps
Are you building plans for 2010? Strategic plans? Goals? Action plans? Even New Year’s Resolutions? Many of you are. You are told to think big, dream big, plan big. I’m couldn’t agree more. Until…
you stall. You start thinking about the resources. You start thinking about the time. You start thinking of all the limitations that prevent you from thinking big. The following quote by F.W. Robertson comes to mind:
â€œIf I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.â€
Continue to dream big dreams. But don’t try to get there. Instead just focus on small steps. Don’t try to become a world-rocking public speaker – instead start by trying to book your first speaking opportunity. Don’t try to build a world class problem solving culture – just start by getting everyone to repeat “no problem is a problem.” Don’t attempt eliminating all defects – eliminate just the next defect. You can and should have big dreams, but don’t let those big dreams paralyze you. You shouldn’t know how you’re going to achieve every bit of it. If you already knew how to, it probably isn’t that big.
Dream big, take small steps. Then repeat.
