Sometimes we make great plans for these huge, wonderful things we are going to do. Then, for one reason or another, we never quite ‘do’ them. Or we may start, but never actually complete them.

Here’s a great quote from Peter Marshall, Clergyman (1902-1949)

“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.”

Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m all for setting those ‘big hairy audacious goals’, but don’t forget the little things you can do too.

Who knows, over time those little things – the small deeds – may well grow into ‘great deeds’.

Here’s to your business success…

  1. I think the real problem is that we spend too much time for the details. After spending few days on a details which were supposed to take few hours you often get frustrated and you leave the project. I strongly suggest to deal with the details later, after the “skeleton” of this grandios “to-do” is done.

    As Guy Kawasaki said : “Just get going!”.

    Nice post!

    I agree with you there – your ‘skeleton’ is a good analogy.
