It's easy to think of baby steps as tentative or small, but that's not true. Instead, baby steps are a great unbalanced, wholehearted, enthusiastic lurch into the unknown.
Think about it.
When babies first start learning to walk, they don't take tiny, hesitant, little steps. Instead, they take huge, unbalanced stumbles that almost always fail. But then they get themselves back up, and they try again because they're enthusiastic about learning new things.
The same is valid for adults. It's important to take baby steps when you're doing something new, but those steps don't have to be small or tentative. They can be huge, enthusiastic, and blind. Just know that failing is part of the process.
So go ahead and take some baby steps in your career and life - remember that they're not always what you think they are.
