This dedication to taking a single step every day, to becoming better and more successful, is the theme of many of the entrepreneural blogs and podcasts that are now on the Internet. Success in business as in life is made through taking daily steps towards our goal or goals. Our ham radio hobby is so vast, that it may be a good place to start in one direction for a while to develop skills and expertise, before changing direction to some other area of the hobby.
As hams, we have made major contributions to communications, technology, computing, and advancing the state of the art. However, all of these hams did not make these break throughs with short sprints every once in a while. They were made with a single minded pursuit of a solution to a problem left to be solved.
One of the hams here in Israel told me that the best advice he was given from another ham was to make one QSO per day. Just one. Over time these will add up to over 300 per year. How many of us make 300 QSOs a year?
