Little strokes fell great oaks.
Benjamin Franklin

Many times, entrepreneurs, particularly those that are embarking on their first venture, think that they have to hit a “home run” in a short period of time in order to be successful. As time goes by, you realize through experience and observation that the true key to success in entrepreneurship, as in many types of endeavors, is to consistently hit singles and doubles (to continue with the baseball “home run” metaphor). You can and should savor the home runs when they come along, but you should not try to hit one every time at bat.
