Big impact

Sure, you want to find ways to make a big difference. But in your zeal to do so, don’t overlook all the opportunities to make a small difference.

Incremental improvements are not dramatic or glamorous. Most people probably won’t even notice them at all.

Yet that doesn’t mean those small, incremental improvements are unimportant. Indeed, they are the way that almost all progress is made.

The most highly educated people do not gain all their knowledge in a single, spectacular event. That knowledge is built incrementally, one page of one book at a time, one lecture at a time, one experience at a time.

Successful enterprises do not spring into being fully formed. They are built, hour after hour, week after week, with plain old ordinary effort.

Are you looking to make a big difference, to have a big impact on life? Then seize every chance to make a small difference, for those differences are what will add up to the big impact you seek.
