Doing small things well

For want of a nail...

An old saying goes:

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.

Take care of the small things, the details, the seemingly unimportant. These are the things that make up the fabric and foundation of our existence. What nails could you be paying more attention to at the moment? Time management / procrastination? Making that difficult decision or phone call? Looking after your health and fitness? Larger dreams rarely get accomplished without details being attended to.

Haha Sarah you are awesome.

Better put this in as a disclaimer – your comment made me think. For someone who works in insurance, I’ve been terribly slack!
