Leadership Keys: Small Steps, Big Results

Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

Lao Tzu

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant.  If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.  

Ecclesiastes 11:4 (New Living Translation)

The Power of ‘Small, Easy Steps’ 

Link: The Life of a Non-profit: Growth & Growing Pains (Robin Morgan)

“In the life of a non-profit there are three general levels of growth, namely: Early, Middle, and Maturity . . . There are ways to tackle growing pains or, in some cases, avoid anticipated growth-related challenges altogether.   While the Executive Director is the face of the organization, their real role in growing successfully is often misunderstood.  Dealing effectively with growing pains, [Morgan has] observed, really depends more on an organization’s Board members than it’s Executive Director”.

  • Some people let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Too often perfectionism is, truth be told, a mask for one’s underlying procrastination.  Have in your mind how you’d like the Journey to end and start it.  Do it!  You won’t reap a harvest for a seed you never planted!
