Thinking big starts with thinking small

If all you do is to think big all the time then you’ll miss all the small things.

But it all starts with the small things.

You have to get the small things right to be able to get the big things right.

Big things are the result of successfully doing the small things.

But if all you do all day long is to think about your multi million dollar business, about your multi million dollar audience, then you won’t care enough about your first 5 customers.

Or your first 5 viewers.

Or your first 5 listeners.

Or your first 5 readers.

You’ll think that they’re not important.

But as a matter of fact your first 5 customers, your first 5 viewers, listeners or readers are the most important ones. Ever…

Because they’re the ones who’ll tell their friends about you.

And then those friends will tell their friends about you.

And on and on and on.

And if you ignore your first 5, 10, 20, 30, 100,… if you don’t care about them more than anybody else, then you’ll never be able to go to the next 5.

Or the next 5.

Or the next 5.

That’s the only way you’ll ever get to a million.

5 at a time.

Or two.

Or three.

Or four.

Or any other ridiculously small number.

Until you reach critical mass.

When will you reach critical mass?

No one knows.

And no one starts at a million.

We all start at 1.

Thinking big starts with thinking small…


Alright. So a few days ago I started putting out one video a day where I answer questions and expand on some of the stuff I write here on Medium and on my blog. You can join the Facebook group and ask questions over at Coffe (or Tea) with Yann. Also, follow me on YouTube. If you don’t want to see my face, then just keep reading my daily blog at yanngirard.typepad.com :)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
