Why The Little Things Matter More

Ever wonder why you can brush your teeth every morning but can’t get that one email out the door or lose those pesky 5 pounds?

We focus on the big outcome instead of the little things. We easily react in fury and anger when our significant other doesn’t do something for us. Yet, at the same time, do we tell them what makes us happy? Do you ask your significant other for what you want on a weekly or monthly basis? Maybe it’s as simple as a take out meal once a month so you don’t have to cook. But, then you blow up at your significant other for never doing anything for you. Yet, you never asked for what you want.

How does this translate at work? Your projects are boring. It’s the same monotonous project every single time. Your boss thinks you love it as you nail the project on time, and in budget each time. Yet, you’re drowning in boredom. You want to pull your hair out. All you want is a project that is challenging, new, and fun. Yet, you never ask for it. At the end of the year, you realized you gained 20 lbs out of boredom and can’t figure out why.

It’s the little things you do each day that turn you into the person you want to become and create the reality you want. We get frustrated at the bigger outcome but don’t realize it’s what we do every day that leads to the bigger outcome.

Do you have a big dream but can’t make any strides on moving it forward? You may doubt yourself. You may be afraid to fail. You may wonder if it’s really worth the time and effort even though it makes your heart sing. But, the big question is – Do you let others know what your dream is, how to support you or do you keep it all to yourself thinking it will magically happen? When you tell people, the world, what you want, the universe will conspire to make it happen.

Are you willing to make small steps each day towards what you really want? Will you make this a habit just like you brush your teeth everyday?

Small steps every day lead to big gains over time.

Imagine how an hour a day on a specific project will progress with 365 hours over the course of a year.

It will advance you immensely.

The time to start is now.  

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
