#ThursdayThought – Incremental Efforts
How do you climb a tall ladder?
One rung at a time.
And yet we forget to apply that principle to the bigger and more challenging – dare we say “daunting”? – tasks and goals.
Changing culture, implementing a new process or system, and pivoting to a new business model all seem monumental. But they get completed in small steps over time that build to the bigger accomplishment once all the groundwork has been laid.
Taking the time to improve through self-development, learning a new skill, or creating habits beneficial to yourself and others all are the result of consistent incremental efforts, occurring over time.
When you feel the urge to say “I don’t have time,” consider what 2 extra minutes of focused incremental efforts might create.
