Little things matter


Going into debt for a small amount is no big deal, and that’s what makes it such a big problem. Those debts that are so small you don’t even think about them can quickly add up and overwhelm you.

Saving a little bit of money is no big deal, and that’s what makes it so powerful. It’s accessible, easy to do often, and can eventually add up to real wealth.

Little things matter because there are so very many of them. When you get the little things in your life right, the big things follow suit.

In your relationships, in your career, in your management of time, little things matter. In maintaining your car, in keeping your home clean, in your health and fitness, little things matter.

It’s great to make big plans and to dream big dreams. The way you actually achieve those dreams is by being diligent with the little things.

What small problem can you solve right now, that will prevent a lot of bigger problems later on? Tend to the little things, for they all combine together to make a big impact on your life.
