If everyone would only do just a little, imagine what a difference it would make in the world.
Take recycling, for example. It is successful because a lot of people are each doing a little. If we all took the position that what we could do would be too little, we wouldn't be experiencing the progress we are today.
Similarly, when you first begin a project, you may only have enough time to do a little.
Over time, however, what may first appear to be small efforts will
multiply and end up being significant!
Looking At Inventors and Scientists
If inventors and scientists just gave up because they didn't have enough time,
or didn't have all the answers, imagine all the conveniences, or advances in
medicine, we would not have today!
Wisdom To Keep In Mind
Keep in mind the wisdom
of Edmund Burke the next time you think you can only do a little:
"Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who does nothing because he could only do a little."
And, remember the wisdom said by David DeNotaris:
"I ask people if an elephant has ever bitten them. Most of the time people say no. But everyone has been bitten by a mosquito. It's the little things that get us."
There have been many times in my life when I only had a little time to
work on my goals. Writing my first book was one of those times.
I worked full time, I had two children, there were not enough hours in a day.
But each morning I would get up an hour before the children and work for
one hour on my book. For those of you who have written a book you know
that one-hour to work is not a lot of time. But doing this every day,
week after week, I saw the book taking shape. If I had said I only have
time to do a little therefore I won't do it, my book would not be published today.
Personal action is your pathway to success,
even if it is a little bit at a time!
