Success in increments

Everything big that we are wowed by,
is bound by its small connectors

 
It was started today, in the tiniest of ways, by a decision to be okay with all there was yet to know, being involved enough to grow.
 
If you start, you will have something.
If you do it again, You will find out just a little bit more to make it better. If you do it a third time, and a fourth, and fifth, each time you find tiny little ideas or fixes that make your work better. Pretty soon you’re in a completely different place than you were at the beginning – when you were fearful about all that you didn’t know or all that you thought you could not do.
 
Start with a smile
to get to gaining attention,
to get to hello,
to get to a conversation,
to get to a friendship.
 
We do all things in this way.
This incremental method.
Sure, begin with the end in mind.
The process is what we live.
 
We seem to think there are those having some unobtainable answer. They don’t. They have earned their method. We all get to what we know by doing it over and over, getting better each time. In work, in love and in life. Tiny, seemingly inconsequential bits at a time.
 
The right bond holds together everything of immense value.
 
Engage in and take some contentment, even joy from the smallest of increments. The small parts are always building something bigger.
 
Where are you laying that single brick today?
What are you building up?
