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".
