The secret of getting ahead is getting started – Mark Twain

Even-though this quote is being falsely attributed to Mark twain, I will roll with it, because i’m interested in the quote here, rather than the persona!

There is a more extended version of it :

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”

– Unknown, but attributed to Mark Twain

This quote has a very important message, that is pretty effective, for many entrepreneurs the starting point is a moment of courage, when they decided to take the jump … and thus “The secret of getting ahead is getting started“, describes exactly this moment. Also this quote can have a different meaning, promoting entrepreneurship, getting ahead in life, or having a better life needs taking risk and starting a project/ company, as compared to being employed all your life and paying bills.
