Positive Quote: “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” – George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)
I like this quote, as it reminds me that nothing great is done just by someone waking up one morning and saying, “I’m going to do something great today”…it takes many small things done well that can lead up to greatness. To me, the most difficult part is maintaining a positive attitude and high level of engagement while the “great” is being built.
It is easy to lose sight in how the work you are doing is leading to something wonderful or towards some larger vision and goal. Yet, each of us has a part to play and valuable items to contribute towards the whole.
I am a firm believer that it takes a village to create success and that no one can do great things alone. We must work with others to make things happen. This can be applied in our personal lives or in our work lives or in any arena from politics to making someone’s day a little brighter.
What do you think of this quote?
Have a marvelous Wednesday and here is to each of us doing a series of things that can lead to even greater things.
