Quote 3: Make Progress

Over the next few weeks I’m going to share memorable quotes that I re-quote on a regular basis from people that I have met. These quotes have had a big impact on my leadership and entrepreneurship. I think they will impact you too.

I went to business school with this cool cat called Luke Huggett. One day about 7 years ago, before I started the company that most people know me for I was having trouble getting it off the ground. I could not get any one to believe in it and was lamenting to him over lunch.

He stopped me in the conversation and explained that I was over thinking it and said, “people want to help people that make progress, just show regular progress each week and month and people will believe you.” These words have been ringing true in my ears ever since - and what is more, they have worked.

I have observed that the best way to lead people in a direction that has never been pursued is to show regular steady predictable progress. Before you know it, people will be clamoring to work with you, work for you, invest in you, buy from you. People are inspired and motivated by regular forward progress, even if it is small, the momentum will draw them in.

While you are making regular progress towards your goals share this post and subscribe.
