"I'm comfortable taking one step at a time, getting it right, then moving on. I don't like thinking big. You'll never get hurt by taking a small step,making sure the ground is firm, then taking the next step. I get big by thinking small."
-- Richard Melman,
founder Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises
I was named after Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.Growing, up I felt I had to live up to the Neil Armstrong name by thinking big and shoot for the stars (or the moon). So throughout my life I strived for big things- to get the A in class, strive to make the biggest and best organizations. But along the way, I realized that thinking big is not necessarily the best thing when you think to big and not do it right along the way. As the quote from Melman above states: "you'll never get hurt by taking a small step, making sure the ground is firm, then taking the next step.
So my philosphy now is to do it right the first time, then take the next step. I have firm belief that doing lot's of little things right, eventually will maek big things happen.
