Don’t bite off more than you chew

You’re young. You’re hungry. You want to get ahead.

Impatient energy is a good thing.

Just be careful you don’t take too big steps.

The way you eat an elephant is one bite at a time.

Want to build the world’s biggest bakery? Start by selling bread to people who live walking distance.

Then bread to people within driving distance.

Then bread to people within flying distance.

Etc etc etc.

If you start trying to sell to everyone within flying distance, you’re likely fail.

Too big a bite.

Take one small bite at a time, chew.

Repeat.
