How To Create A Mountain

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 (:



It Takes Time

It took me 12 years to get over my fear of talking with adult figures, 

and 10 more years to start talking to adults on a regular basis with more confidence (because I too, am an adult now). 

We take long amounts of time to get over our fears, but that’s okay. It’s normal. 

We need patience with ourselves so that we can grow. 

On the contrary, we also need fear so that we can grow faster.
