“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.”
Great things aren’t built in flash. It takes planning, focus, determination, and consistent effort to build anything that is worthwhile. All too often we want the big deal, the big result, the next “big thing” without having put in the effort required to build it. Those great things won’t and don’t happen without a ton of work that is built on the foundation of the daily activities and habits we embrace. Those efforts, performed with great clarity and focus, are creating the foundation for our successes in the future. It is these small efforts that build great things. It doesn’t work any other way, so don’t take for granted the small things, for those habits will define who you become.
If you could travel back in time five years what small things would you tell yourself to start doing in order to change and grow toward greater successes and learning in the future? What prevents you from starting them today?
