We all want to do big things; things that make an impact, things that change the world, things that leave a legacy. In our pursuit of big things, we discount the value of small things. The nudges, the small victories, the disciplines, the activity.
The big things we want to achieve often lead us down a path of isolation. Our brand, our idea, and our success story. We fear that giving parts away, partnership and collective effort, will make our big things small.
Often, the converse is true. What we think is big, is small. Like an ant in a colony hauling a leaf 99 times its own weight.
Small things only become big things when we do them together.
