B is for Begin and Be Bold

While discretion may just be the better part of valor, timidity never won the day.  And then there's that old adage, "go big or go home." I get that, but I don't always believe it to be true. I think you can do little things that can profoundly affect an outcome.

The trick is to make them bold little things. Make them count. You can wear a ring on every finger and have people comment, "My goodness, that's a lot of rings!" Or you can wear a single brilliant sapphire and have people comment, "Wow, is that ever striking!" Yeah, that's a really cheesy example, but I'm on a bit of a time crunch here... and you get the point.

You don't have to lambaste the world with your big idea, you simply need to begin. But when you begin, be bold about it. A baby doesn't take its first step by doing some half-assed shuffle. A baby takes its first step by trying for a gigantic stride. Sure, the baby falls over, but the baby has also said, "Look out, I'm about to run circles around you." The baby has begun. Boldly.

Once you begin, you Create Change....
