No effort in IT is too small. The aforementioned journeys are not quick ones. Undertaking the journey is not an easy task. With that in mind, if you wait for the “perfect moment” to begin that journey, you’ll never move. (Cliche warning again) Grab the bull by the horns and get moving. Pick a small project and move it to the next stage. Prove to yourself and your organization that you can do it and that it will make a difference. Trust me, when you look back, you will see that it WAS the “perfect moment” and you just couldn’t see it at the time.
One year of walking the beat has shown me that success is out there and it really is in everyone’s reach. You just need to understand a few things. It is a process and an evolution and even the smallest step is movement in the right direction.
