I came accross this blog today and thought it appropriate to share. I have been looking out my window and in our community spring is trying to come but the clouds and hail are getting the upper hand. So for some reason the words in this blog spoke to me.
The quotation illustrated in this blog post is so essential to engrain its understanding in your head as you go through both your business and personal life.
Pay Very Close Attention To The Little Things.
Little things can have huge meaning, and ignoring them or not finding them can cost you big time in money, feelings, bad memories, lost opportunities.
Recently on an appliance repair I ALMOST had to pay an additional $7,000 but the repair guy and I instead found a $5 part that caused it not to work. The space shuttle Challenger EXPLODED due to a lower cost rubber O-ring that could not seal properly in the cold. In an after school lunch program I participated in with little kids and I helped them with their math homework a little girl no older than seven hugged me, didn't even know me that well, "Thanks Mr. Gary." Meant the world to me. I was making her day. A smile, a kindness, a cheerful uplifting email or chat or text or smily face with a Facebook comment or Tweet, you go to great lengths with your little things of turning the world around.
Even just raw persistence with something, tenaciousness paying attention to the "littlest of details" with people with your senses of vision, sound, and feeling, make a HUGE difference to others.
Your assignment for tomorrow is this PAYING ATTENTION game to the "little things." My examples were just tiny tidbits. There are millions of them out there. Watch ones you receive. Look at the ones you send out.
Little things. They ALL count. And MEAN so very much in the grand scheme of things.
