One of my favorite quotes is by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He said, “Dream no small dreams, for they have no power to move the hearts of men.” I agree we need to want to get to the moon long before we actually can get there.
And yet… I’ve never believed in big dreams. I believe in small dreams that we actually achieve. Talk is cheap. Action is all I’m interested in. It’s cool to dream small and make it happen. It amazes me how much happens than I ever dreamed possible.
A series of small dreams is the only way I know how to get to the big ones. Step by step, one foot in front of the other.
My friend Mary studies and writes about this stuff full time. “Action is what really works. That’s the simple scientific truth. All the planning (or dreaming) in the world can’t even come close to the power of a simple step.”
