Dream Big

dream big

A few days back, I was in a business review with a young colleague., evaluating some performance metrics associated with a critical but high-stakes agenda we had embarked on a few months back. It was something we had never done before and was highly likely to fail. We acknowledged the risks but still went ahead, making the necessary investments in terms of time, resources and focus. Our thinking was, let’s take the risk. If we fail, we will still come out better with something tangible learned. If we succeed, the upside will be massive.

The results were fabulous, beating our conservative estimates by order of magnitude.

As both of us patted ourselves for the fantastic results, my young friend came out with a classic one-liner – You can’t dream small to achieve big!!
