There’s no such thing as an overnight success. You have to lay the groundwork day by day for a long, long time. You must win many private victories before you experience a public victory. Houses are built one brick at a time. Football games are won one play at a time. Businesses are built one customer at a time. Every big accomplishment is the result of many smaller accomplishments.
“Do not despise the bottom rungs in the ascent to greatness.”
– Publilius Syrus
