This can be applied to our weight loss, be consistent in
counting calories/points, logging our food. Did anyone
catch the email going around about a HyVee store that
had a campaign about making their customers feel special?
A handicapped bag boy took it to heart, he wrote out a special
positive message on slips of paper and put them into each bag .
Soon everyone wanted him to bag their groceries because of
the positive message he wrote out and signed.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

- Dale Carnegie

Do You Value the Small Tasks in Life?

Do you ever feel that you will never advance in your life or career and get that opportunity to do something BIG? Don't doubt the importance and impact on doing the smaller jobs in life! The key to this quote is being consistent--despite the level (or lack of) glamour or grandeur of your work. If you must scrub toilets, make them the shiniest, cleanest darn toilets on the block! In all things do the best you can, whether someone is looking or not. If you want to succeed in life, it is important that you have a strong foundation of consistent, hard work. Don't dodge the smaller tasks in an effort to hold out for the glamorous, important jobs. Put value in the small things and you'll reap a huge reward when you're put to the test!
