Little Things - So Little as You Think Big But Do Not Forget the Little Things!

It is true that little things are so little you must not forget those little things that matter.
You might be busy and have loads of things to do. But you should not ignore the little things that will help you attain your goals. "Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things - I am tempted to think there are no little things."-Bruce Barton.

Little things are really little and could be easily missed out, ignored or overlooked in most situations. But know that "It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen."-John Wooden.

For example, attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.-Winston Churchill. You might have the money and skills required for a job but your attitude to the receptionist might ruin that opportunity. Same thing goes when you are relating any one be it waiters, drivers or security men -courtesy or kindness are also little that could go a long way. After all, "That best portion of a man's life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love."- William Wordsworth

Yeah! The big things need most attention, they can get. But when "we forget the little things, so it's no wonder some of us screw up the big things." -Neil Cavuto. Og Mandino once said, you should "never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it."

As simple as a phone call just to make it known that you are going to be a little late.

As Pure as a kiss on a cheek saying I love.

As gentle as saying everything will be okay.

As soothing as asking; hope you do not mind?

As easy as getting a little quiet time alone.

"You build a successful career, regardless of your field of endeavor, by the dozens of little things you do on and off the job." Zig Ziglar. Also you need to "guide your pennies for your pounds to be self-protected." -Anonymous

I will leave you with lines from India Arie 's song, titled little things:
"In the quest for fortune and fame do not forget about the simple things.... the little things... and the joy they bring".

The King Thing

If you take out all light, you get pure darkens, if you take out all darkness you get pure light, if you take out all the warmth from the universe, from earth, from a human being, you get pure cold, if you take out all the cold, you get pure heat...if you say you know God, then know that he is pure light, and through nothingness created you, and put you into a universe he created out of nothingness; and from light, and heat, and cold, and darkness, we were sent into, and thus, now we stumble between these elements, light, dark, cold and heat, things, because of sin, these are elements, parts to things, for all that is, are things, and we look and we touch, and we smell and we hear things, things that pass by us, away, little things and big things, just things, things that come out of us, come to us, circle around us, invade us, consume us, possess us, who is the king of things? There must be a king, the ruler of things. Before you take the thing, try the thing, because the world now has so many things, and false prophets, the flesh can no longer overcome things. We all have become little gods of things, with so many things, we no longer hear the spirit inside of us, it is saying 'Here is an error, let no man deceive you, for you have been deceived by things.' There is no more compassion, now they slew the brother, the mother; the children wait outside the hospital room for the father to die, so they can collect more things. The children of today, and tomorrow, and yesterday, go from one thing to another thing, they hate not being compensated unto their heart's desire with things, they want their life cramped with so many things, a grasshopper couldn't fit in it afterwards, let along God. And he goes to pray, to his god (and who is really his go?) and says, "I love you, but I want more things," and he takes from his neighbor, and says "I need them more than you," and a voice says, "It is easy to love those who love you, who are lovable, who give you things, that is not a perfect love (try to love the unlovable), it is a thing you need to replace something you lost, love needs no returns, no things to replace something: now the he asks for receipts, he is keeping count. Love is often a one way street and nowadays all we seem to have are two-way highways, and the preacher man says: I shall speak for, and he tells his people to vote for this man, or that man, thinking he is replacing God, speaking for God, because he wants things... not even he, can escape the dead dog, and find a live lion because he has lost the scent.
