A million bricks (versus one mansion)

Over the weekend I stumbled on a great metaphor for something I’ve mentioned often on the StoryHacker podcast.

In this video on YouTube, Struthless talks about the best drawing advice he’s ever been given.

But it applies to you and your business just as well.

He asked his mentor, an artist, why none of the ventures he was trying were getting anywhere. The reply was fantastic.

”… all you are doing is laying a single brick of million different houses and expecting one day it will magically become a mansion.”

I’ve talked time and time again about the value of focus, and of building things brick by brick.

This metaphor nails it.
