Quote #235, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #235...

"Have confidence that if you have done a little thing well, you can do a bigger thing well too."
-David Storey-

Taking baby steps. That's what baby's have to do when they want to walk. Actually the process goes crawl, walk(baby steps first), run.

In case you haven't noticed, nothing huge happens instantly. It's like the old line.. 'there is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs'. It may appear that a success story happened over night, but trust me.. behind the scenes were a ton of hard work, perspiration, previous failures, trial and error and so on. Which brings us full circle. It all starts with the baby steps.

Do the small things first, do them well, and this will give you confidence to tackle the bigger things. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

That's my view....... What Say You?

World Class North Carolina University coach Anson Dorrance says Excellence is mundane. What he was talking about is that excellence comes from regular people doing regular things--things people do everyday-- BUT they put forth consistent effort, develop habits that support the desired outcome and are doing them daily, consistently and over the long haul. I think your assessment is right on Mr. T!
