Every Friday is Wisdom Friday.  It’s just a way for me to share with my readers the little gems of life that I’ve learned either during the week or living life in general.

One of my mentors once told me, “Think big, but start small.”  His advice at the time was to encourage me to take the first step because I had a tendency to just dream, but the value of the advice goes beyond just nudging me to get started.

Over the years, I’ve learned that by always starting small, you take the most important step to accomplishing anything in life — you started!  The second virtue of starting small is it keeps you from being frozen by the magnitude of your vision.  The third is small steps are easier to conquer, and by accomplishing a small step, you gain confidence in your ability to accomplish the next (small) step.

Next time you feel overwhelmed by your dreams or just the large task at hand, remember to start small.  The most important thing is to start!
