In this quick-attention economy, I’ve found that smaller, quicker steps towards success are a more sure way to bigger successes.
When talking with small business owners, I can sense when the weight of a project or proposal is getting too big. My desire is to stop well short of “heavy” for two reasons:
- Quick Steps to Tangible Success – Smaller projects are often a quicker path to tangible successes. I might have a larger project in mind, but breaking it down into smaller steps (think “kaizen”) builds habits (and relationships) of success.
- Model Digestible Tasks – By taking on projects and tasks in smaller steps, I am modeling how the business owner I’m working with will be able to take on their new tasks in using the web and mobile to improve their business.
Taking smaller steps may lead towards bigger successes. Sometimes quick is better than fast.
