How to Get Better Results

When it comes to getting better results, big is little and little is big. Have you ever heard of this principle before? It means this:

If you want big results in your life or business, you have to do the right little things consistently. And if you do the right little things consistently, the big results you want are practically guaranteed.

So how can you get better results? Imagine what would happen in your business if you took one little, but important action every day. For example, I’m a professional speaker and one little action I take every day is to reach out personally to one person of influence in the industries I serve. My focus is not to book a speaking engagement, but to serve that individual whether he or she hires me to speak or not.

Let’s put this one action into context. If I consistently take this one little action every single day, over time the numbers work out this way:

1 little actions
x 5 days a week
x 48 weeks a year (take off one week a quarter for vacation)
240 little, BUT POWERFUL, actions

How to Get Even BETTER Results

Now, just imagine if you increase these actions by just a little bit. Here’s how those numbers work:

3 little actions
x 5 days a week
x 48 weeks a year (take off one week a quarter for vacation)
720 little, BUT POWERFUL, actions

You might be wondering what kind of actions I’m talking about. Nothing major. Something like sending a handwritten note, sharing a helpful article, or recording a short, personal video. Together, these three actions might take 30-45 minutes a day, but that is time well spent because it’s an investment that adds up to 720 positive and powerful actions each year.

Big is little and little is big!

Move from DREAM to DO

Most people have big dreams, but they never move from DREAM to DO in their lives or businesses because they simply get stuck. They dream about big changes they believe they need to make, but because their dream is so big, they never get around to taking action and their dream eventually becomes a nightmare.

Instead of getting stuck in your big dreams, what would happen if you simply practice big is little and little is big? What would happen if you stopped contemplating the big overhaul action you think you should take and instead simply took one tiny actions at the start of your day? What would happen if you did that today and tomorrow and the next day? Over time, those tiny little actions would lead to the big overhaul you want to accomplish.

Why?

Big is Little and Little is BIG!
