Turn the Dial

Don't expect to reach your goal in a day. Or a week. Maybe even a month. You have a vision for the kind of freelance business you want to run, but it's going to take time. Most people have expectations for their business that are similar to their notions of a light switch. There's on, and there's off. You're either a failure, or you've made it big. But freelancing isn't a light switch. No, freelancing is a big dial, and rather than moving from zero to max in a heartbeat, we turn the dial slowly, one click at a time.

The goal isn't perfection; it's progression. Turn the dial a little bit each day, and you'll be on your way to reaching your goal.
