The Highlanders have got the season under way in fine fashion, with yesterday's well-deserved win away to Dundee United coming hard on the heels of their 3-0 opening-day victory over St Mirren.
Caley Thistle recorded their highest-ever finish in the top flight last season by claiming fourth spot in the table and have wasted no time in sending out a warning to rivals teams with back-to-back wins in their opening two games.
But Butchers maintains they will not be even contemplating the prospect of getting ahead of themselves.
He said: "It's only two games, although both have brought us good results.
"It's always nice to start the new season on a positive note and the lads are all in good spirits because of that.
"We're very happy to win at a tough place like Tannadice and it will hopefully give us momentum which we can take into the weeks ahead.
"But we won't be thinking too far ahead.
"That's never a good thing and it's not our style.
"We're just happy to have six points on the board, but we'll continue to take one game at a time and see where it takes us."
Butcher felt his side could have triumphed by more than just Billy McKay's first-half winner, which saw the striker carry on from where he left off last season in claiming 27 goals.
Defender Graeme Shinnie missed a golden opportunity to increase their lead with minutes remaining but Butcher could not fault his side.
He said: "Graeme should have scored but that's football for you.
"All over the pitch, we were solid, organised and disciplined. It was good to see and when we play like that we are hard to beat.
"Billy is in a rich vein of form just now and hopefully, for our sake, he can continue that because he's a real threat in the opposition penalty area."
United manager Jackie McNamara knows his side must sharpen up especially at home, where they enjoyed so few wins last season.
He said: "It was a frustrating afternoon.
"A lot of it was down to our own sloppiness which was disappointing.
"Some of the the players went into a shell but they need to be braver on the ball.
"We can do better than that and it's up to us to go out there and show that."
