A lot of success in life comes from applying a disproportionate amount of energy and determination to a small goal.
We naturally underestimate how difficult it will be to accomplish small tasks in our lives but when we assume they’re big and apply as much force as we can to them they get done.
This gives us confidence to keep moving and people who keep moving win.
Big goals can occasionally inspire us but when we set too many big goals and fail to meet them we often lose confidence in ourselves and stop moving forward.
Putting a massive amount of effort to ensure that a small task gets done encourages you to do the next task, a bigger one. And to get it done faster. Repeatedly dominating small goals leads to big wins over time.
