Big Is Heroic But Small Is Victorious

Slow and steady wins because slow and steady actually gets more done.

Do the math…s:

Already that’s 210 minutes tortoise versus 120 minutes hare. Over just 1 week. Over the course of a year, it’s 10,920 minutes versus 6240 minutes. 10,920 effortless minutes that you didn’t even feel because they were in such brief, 2~5-minute sprints.

Even 10 minutes a day over the course of a year gets you 3650 minutes. 3650 effortless, “oh my GOSH, this counts?!?!?!?!!?!” minutes, versus 6240 procrastinated, forced, painful, guilt-laden ones…

As always, fake numbers to prove a real point: Big is heroic, or looks heroic. But small is victorious. Small wins. Easy wins. Small is great. Do not knock small. Do not knock easy.

    This is great life advice. I remember an older article posted about how someone applied this to their work out routine and had great success with that, too.
