The Distraction of the Small

A business mentor of mine, Steve, once told me to be careful that I don’t think too small. While having big goals and dreams is a great motivator, I wondered what was wrong with tiny ones, as babysteps can create positive momentum – so I asked.

Steve’s response was this: “Anita, small steps are a great idea once you know what you goal is. That said, small goals lack the ability to elevate our capacity, confidence, and courage. In fact, I would go so far as to say that a small goal can lower our expectations of what’s possible and even distract us with mundane details.”

So be bold with your goal and use babysteps to help you achieve it.

Have a great day,
