It is amazing how much the little things in your life, relationships and business really matters . I was witnessed this week to the final part of three seemingly insignificant events that made a dramatic change in my friend’s life. We might think that the little things does not matter, but in reality little things are more important than the big picture. The saying goes that we must stop and smell the roses. We stand from afar and admire the beauty of the rose, but how often do we stop to truly appreciate it up close. The answer is not usually.
When I think of how this relates to my business it all about “modi operandi” that is the key to my business success. If you treat your business like a “hobby” then guess what it will continue to be. It is about the little things that we do everyday to propel our businesses forward. Are you marketing, advertising and developing strategies daily in your business? If not it is not too late to begin. You may directs, contain and utilize the power of water, but you may never control or destroy it. A continuous stream of water could destroy the biggest rock over time. It might not happen for one, five or fifty but rest assure it will happen. How could doing the little things impact your life and relationships?
If you don’t believe that it is the little things stop reading this post and send your love one an unexpected appreciative “love note”. The reaction that you will receive will be surprising. This note of gratitude will not only benefit your loved one, but will also benefit you also. The series of little things is what make a great relationship. When your significant other is complaining about you leaving the toilet seat up is it really about the toilet seat of something deeper that is bothering her. As men we are late to pick up on these little “subtleties” that will snowball into an avalanche that will bury us.
The quicker that we pick up on these little “disagreements” the sooner we can work on finding the “solution”. I have placed solution in quotation, because that is a whole new discussion about men and women differences. It has come to me time and time again that it is the little things that make your life, relationship and business better. This week I want you to focus on the little things, then give me some feedback.
