Don’t Underestimate the Significance of an Inch

In the sometimes endless debate about what decision to make and what path to take there is something profound about simply taking your first step.  The distance to travel between where you are now and where you want to be will never decrease if the initial movement never starts.

Life has a way of rewarding the inch.

Horse races rarely go to the winner by the mile but often go to the winner by inches.  Insights that make companies and entrepreneurs millions come from seeing their customer’s needs just a little bit better than their competition.  The winning shot is just inches away from not being the winning shot.

Next time you feel like not reading any more, not learning any more, not eating a little healthier, or even trying a little harder, just think that just a little bit more may be the difference between reaching your dreams or falling short.

Life has a way of rewarding getting started, staying in motion, and doing just a little bit more.
