Think big. Do small.

I came across a great comment/quote from James Clear (who @csallen also did a podcast a few months back) that I felt I just had to share here.

It feels so perfect for indie hackers. And has been pretty much my journey. The big picture means nothing if you are not willing to put in the many daily actions required whilst remember that most people won't notice all of your hard work.

Keep calm, and carry on!

    I understand the sentiments behind this quote, but I personally find these ideas excessively vague. Of course, this matter of thinking works for certain projects, but there are often times where you can't focus on thinking small when it comes to progress (I am pretty sure that we can all relate to a moment where we had to make big progress).

    Overall, I understand the sentiment and its positive intentions. I also just find context for each plan to be important.

    Horrible!!!! Think big, go big!

    Most make small progress, thats why few do big things.

    I recommend reading Zero to One

    It is all about thinking big and living day by day on only small tasks to the one big thing
