BIG vs. small

“A dream that does not include risk is not really worthy of being called a dream.”

Ever felt that, compared to what you’re up against, you don’t have enough skills, manpower, strength or resources?  Circumstances have a tendency to make you feel…well frankly, small.  Over the course of history…at some point, at some time, somebody convinced smart people that being small was disadventageous.

 I say to laugh at the “BIG,” stare down the challenges and defy the obstacles.  Revel in who you are…not how you measure up to your competitors or something else.  Being small has its advantages too…your quick, nimble and agile.  Even Bill Gates started out of a garage.  Being small means your often closer to the “frontline.”  Whether that be your customers in the business world or your employees in management, being in the trenches can give you a better understanding and awareness of needs and future trends.

So what is “BIG” and what is “small?”  It’s nothing more that a matter of perception.  After all…the bigger they are, the harder they fall!
