Little things mean a lot. The next little thing you do contributes to the next little thing you accomplish. And those little accomplishments add up to big accomplishments. Over time, you make significant progress.
Or you don’t.
Blowing off the small things, rushing through them hastily, and lowering your quality standards for short-term goals all diminishes what you are able to accomplish over the long term.
Doing good work on the small things, even (especially) the things nobody else sees, matters. Developing skills and practicing discipline on smaller tasks pays dividends on the larger, more visible work. Big things are accomplished by those who focus on the little things.
