When Big is Small

We’re talking a lot this year about doing big things. But, a huge goal can be overwhelming, especially when you’re not sure where to begin.

“I don’t look to jump over 7-foot bars. I look around for 1-foot bars that I can step over.” — Warren Buffett

That’s a good idea. Why not start small in the quest for something big? Besides, little things really do make a difference … or so they say.

“Inches make champions.” — Vince Lombardi

Giving attention to the seemingly small things—you know, the things on our “To Do” lists that always get picked last in gym class—might be the way to go here. If we begin taking care of the little things, won’t something big follow?

“It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” — John Wooden

In “How to Set Goals Like Bill Gates,” author and motivational speaker Mike Litman says, “Make your goals smaller. Take a deep breath and take one step at a time. Success is counterintuitive.” And, there is so much out there to help us along the way like these tips to achieving your goals and inspiration on how to accomplish the impossible.

Maybe big isn’t so big and daunting after all. Maybe, when all is said and done, big is actually small.

What do you think? What are some of the small things you must do to accomplish your big thing? What are some of the small things you see missed most often?
