This is what starting small looks like
Want to surf the big waves? Start by riding the small waves.
Want to write a book?
Start small: write an essay.
Want to be a rock star?
Start small: sing in the shower.
Want to speak at a conference?
Start small: give a talk at a meetup.
Want to make $1 million in sales?
Start small: sell a $10 item to one customer.
Want to create a podcast?
Start small: record a voice memo on your phone.
Want 1,000 true fans?
Start small: do something that gets you one true fan.
Start small. Show up every day. Keep refining your craft. Take risks and get uncomfortable.
And most importantly:
“Embrace feedback as a gift.” — Seth Godin
Repeat these steps for days, months, and years, and you’ll become the person you aspire to be.
