I worked with a fellow a few years ago that directed development for our company. His name is Kurt Williams. He basically built a new technology that started with IVRs and is now mainstream. He streamlined the interface considerably for the Internet, phones, web bots, and POS systems all over the world. When Kurt joined our company, I didn’t know him at the time. The CEO brought him on to run development, and I’m sure glad he did. I soon came to appreciate his capacity and marveled at his work. While I was browsing LinkedIn recently, Kurt’s name appeared with the following quote, which I think is stellar:
"I see lots of posts like '8 things gazillionaires do every morning' or 'The 5 books Some Rich Entrepreneur says you must read.' There’s this idea that a book, technique, or process will make you a successful entrepreneur or something. But really, it’s just about stacking up small wins every day, and keeping at it over time even during setbacks. Stack up small wins. Great buildings are built brick by brick. There aren’t shortcuts."
Brilliant! You can benefit tomorrow from the wins you stack up today. Do that one thing every single day, and there is no limit to where you can go. I have seen the results firsthand.
Stack up small wins every day.
