Taped near my bathroom mirror (so I see it every day) is a piece of paper with this Robert Collier quote: Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
Boy, is that true about starting a business. Everybody has days when you feel sluggish, or just don’t want to do anything. When that happens, here’s a suggestion: find something small to do that keeps you moving you forward.
Maybe it’s calling or emailing someone you’ve been meaning to contact. Or sorting through business cards you’ve collected recently and adding people to your Outlook. Or drafting a couple of paragraphs for your business plan. Whatever it is, you’ll have accomplished something by the end of the day.
Undertaking small efforts can help shake off the doldrums and provide momentum. So go ahead — pick an item or two on your to-do list, preferably ones that are relatively easy, and get going. You’ll be that much further down the road to becoming a business owner.
