Today’s Small Steps Create Tomorrow’s Greatness
How often are we inspired to do something grand but get overwhelmed by the thought of getting it done? I fall in that trap sometimes. I am writing another book. The thought of having it completed and published is grand indeed! But getting up early and often to write is something I don’t look forward to. However, it must be done if the book is to be written. You may see yourself getting that coveted promotion and the corner office with a view. Landing such a cushy position means working hard and effectively every day. There are no short-cuts to greatness. Every day, focus on taking the small steps. Commit to doing one or two things that move the ball further down the goal line. Concentrate on mastering and executing the individual play, and the big win will take care of itself.
Executing any great idea means taking daily, simple steps. It may seem like grunt work. It may be boring and repetitive. But that’s what churns your engine to greatness. Get moving towards greatness today, one simple task, one simple step at a time.
Remember the ancient Chinese proverb: The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
