They are the slow drip of life that moves us forward.
We often get carried away with the huge decisions that will alter our path immediately, like getting married, having a child, choosing a career.
Even these big decisions are actually the result of a whole pile of small decisions. This is easy to forget. Choosing a career might seem like one big choice but what is that made of? Decisions to go to certain classes instead of others, to take a new training, to read and study every day, to apply for certain jobs. You get the idea.
Loads of daily decisions go into that career decision.
Make the small decisions count
These decisions we make add up, and right now there are many decisions you could be making that will change your life and business.
In the space of a few months, a year, or two years. In a relatively short amount of time things could be vastly different than they are now.
Big results don’t come from one major decision. You need many, many daily decisions to create a big result.
Luckily of you, there are many things you can choose in a day that will support those big results you want like a fantastic business doing meaningful work.
Remember the truth about decisions
The decisions we make are powerful. They commit you to some sort of goal you want. They aren’t enough in themselves though. They require action. Regular, consistent action. The great thing is those actions can be small, very tiny. They add up and create change, expansion and new possibilities.
What are some small decisions you can make today to shift the course of your business to the one you dream of having?

They compel you to make certain choices over others. They give you motivation and inspiration to do more than you thought you could.
They are fully under your control, and you can choose at any moment to change them around. Sometimes they evolve as we do, and that is a strength too. You value things today that you didn’t value 10 years ago. It’s a natural process, but you be intentional about it if you wish. Change your values, change your track.

Your decision to stand out is followed up by actions. Make them small, small actions. It is too hard to look at marketing and creating your amazing business as one giant step.
It’s an inspirational goal, but the way there is too fuzzy without breaking it into little steps. Everyday find a little action that is toward this goal. One little thing you can do. One thing you are willing to do. If you make that action, then take another.
It gets easier. Every decision and action make the next one easier.
Decide on your goals
Your goals are powerful tools to inspire and motivate you. They are very important decisions to make. In your business it’s not enough just to show up and do some work.
