Yesterday I saw a headline in a magazine that read, “Go Big or Go Home.” Although I didn’t have time to read the article, that headline struck a chord with me because it’s true. It’s true about everything you do in life – including booklets.
Raise Your Hand If You Want To Be A Janitor When You Grow Up
Remember when you were a kid and you told other kids about what you wanted to be when you grew up? Maybe you wanted to be an astronaut, or a policeman, or a teacher. Whatever it was, that profession seemed glorious to you in ways that other professions didn’t. It inspired you and it was a big thing.
Few, if any, children have dreams about being janitors or debt collectors. It isn’t that there is anything wrong with these kinds of jobs. In fact, we need them in our society and culture in order to maintain it. But, let’s face it. Janitors and debt collectors don’t get much credit for the jobs they do, and in the eyes of the young it’s the astronauts and policemen who are the heroes.
Why Most People Tolerate Boring Jobs
When children grow up, they often forget the dreams of heroics they had in their younger days. It’s time to face reality and get a “real” job. Some will follow their dream and become the hero. Most will not. Sadly, the majority will settle for something far less exciting. And sadder still is the fact that most of those who settle won’t budge even after they realize they aren’t happy or fulfilled in their current position.
Nobody makes the decision consciously to work at a boring job. Nobody gets up in the morning and says, “I need to find a job. I think I’ll try to find something that makes me miserable and that doesn’t inspire me or satisfy me in any way.” No, what most people do is try to find something that will pay the bills. The fact that it makes them miserable is just something they tolerate in order to be able to do that.
Don’t Think Big, Do Big!
So, what does this have to do with booklets? Think back to your own childhood for a moment and how excited you were about becoming whatever it was you wanted to be when you grew up. Now, think about when you first heard about the possibility of becoming an author by writing a booklet. Were you just as excited about becoming a booklet author as you were about becoming a policeman or teacher? If you’re like most writers, your answer will be yes.
If you are excited about becoming or being a booklet author, then why would you want to settle for anything less than something big? Don’t you want to get the most from your booklet writing experience as you possibly can? Of course you do! So, don’t do it up small. Do it up big! Don’t do the least you can do, do the most!
The most successful people in business and in life are not the ones who think big, but the ones who DO big! That means taking some big action, and doing more than just the minimum to get by.
Big riches follow big actions, and if you’re not going to go big, then why bother creating a booklet at all? Go big, or go home!
To your riches!
