THE FIRST STEP OF ANY JOURNEY IS ALWAYS THE HARDEST. This aphorism is designed to remind us that change is hard. And, it is. Mark Twain may have coined it best by saying, “The only person who likes change is a wet baby.”
Aphorisms are little wisdom statements that hold general truths. This one’s wisdom, ‘change is hard,’ is obvious, but it hides another general truth. Let’s dump it for a better one.
SMALL CONSISTENT STEPS MAKE CHANGE EASIER. This aphorism reminds us that change is hard but also provides a solution to the challenge. Innovators and creators know this. They take very small steps…
They find the resources. They make the time. They sense what to do next. And, they don’t need permission.
LET’S DREAM BIG AND TAKE SMALL STEPS.
