Start Small and then…
by Dwayne Phillips
There are many good reasons for starting small. One is that it allows room for growth, and growth brings with it optimism, hope, and other good tidings.
There are good reasons to start small. If I do it all wrong, I have only invested small resources like time, money, equipment, emotion, etc. Small things can bring quick benefits like a few inquiries or even one paying customer (or two). Starting small teaches me if there is something “there” that I want. (Maybe that chinchilla farm wasn’t for me after all.) I could go on.
One of the benefits of starting small is that there is room for growth. I am doing more and better today than yesterday. Hmmm, I like the sound of that. I like the feel of that. I like that.
Growth shows that I can still grow. It can still learn. Learning, for me, brings hope and optimism. Those things push me forward.
I guess this is a variation of the old adage about having small expectations so I won’t be disappointed. It is better than that, though. Learning is invigorating. I can do this. I am moving. I am not retired in place.
There is a lot of “rah rah rah” pep rally stuff in this post. Sometimes that is a good thing. I hope this post was a little cheering to you as well.
