Big change doesn’t happen without tiny actions backing it up. The secret sauce? In Darren Hardy’s book, The Compound Effect, the following is the secret to creating change:
repeated action over time = impact
That’s it. One action, over a long period of time (weeks, months, years) creates the change we seek to make. Whether it be gaining confidence, finding your presentation voice, creating better work, forming new friendships, or gathering people for a sketchbook club, it takes time to get the momentum rolling into an unstoppable snowball of impact.
So, don’t give up and keep at your small everyday actions. One day in the future, they’ll pile up into a big mountain (:
