Anticipating a Breakthrough

That’s what we spend most of our time doing — anticipating the breakthrough speech that will change everything or making a new connection that will open the right door for us.

I used to spend a lot of time waiting for a breakthrough, but I realise now; breakthrough moments rarely happen.

Products, services and individuals succeed one person at a time. Growth can happen quickly, but even then, it’s still in small increments just condensed in time.

We should stop anticipating sudden breakthroughs, even though they’re appealing, and start planning for incremental growth. Our best chance of achieving our goals will be consistently taking one small step after another.
