Starting small

Quote of the day:

Starting small puts 100 percent of your energy on actually solving real problems for real people. It gives you a stronger foundation to grow from. It eliminates the friction of big infrastructure and gets right to the point. And it will let you change your plan in an instant, as you’re working closely with those first customers telling you what they really need.

~ Derek Sivers, Anything You Want

This “small” work that Derek talks about feels less meaningful because it doesn’t produce the magnitude of results that people like us feel we can humblebrag about.

But whatever bugs, inconsistencies, and kinks you have when you’re small (and have the bandwidth to manually smooth), are magnified exponentially as you increase the system in size.
