I am usually more than a little behind on watching the latest movie releases. Case in point, I just got around to watching Julie & Julia.
If you have not seen the movie it is basically the story of Julia Child's start in the cooking profession and how a modern day blogger took on the challenge of cooking all the recipes in Child's first book in one year.
The thing I enjoyed most about the movie was watching a person make a commitment to do something every day and seeing how that commitment changed her life.
There are many things in business and in life that are scary and overwhelming. The best way to conquer these things is to take them one small step at a time. Setting smaller realistic goals to help you reach bigger goals is a great way to keep yourself and your business on track.
“Take that first step. Bravely overcoming one small fear gives you the courage to take on the next.” ~Daisaku Ikeda
