Sometimes, making little waves can be more productive than making big waves. Little waves tend to go a little more unnoticed. As a result, you can make more of them. Before you know it, you’ve beaten down the rocks on the beach by making a bunch of little waves; and done it much more effectively than trying to make the biggest wave possible. Sure, it takes more time. But in the end it’s easier, it’s more effective, and it’s ultimately more productive. It wasn’t a big wave that carved The Grand Canyon. It wasn’t a big wave that wore down The Sphinx. Each of those were created over a long period of time by a bunch of little waves. Trickles. Drops. Nothing to be noticed at the time. And yet their effects are the ones that last.
I almost always prefer to make a bunch of little waves.
