Small tasks to win the long game

Dharmesh Mistry

Dharmesh had high hopes of starting a little league ultimate frisbee sports program in Ahmedabad and supporting these children's holistic development (education, aspirations, health). Dharmesh spent the first six months getting the kids just to show up every Sunday. Watch how the small things manifest.

Something to think about

  1. Are you watching for the small successes of your project? What small successes can you identify?
  2. Nelson Mandela said: "Sports have the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope, where there was once only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination." Discuss in context of Dharmesh story and your own experience.
  3. Why might the important stuff happening in the background be out of Dharmesh's line of sight
