John Wooden once said, “It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” In life and leadership that is so true.
My family and I are currently in the middle of a vacation at the beach. Over the years I have enjoyed beaches in the Caribbean, Central America, and the Mediterranean to name a few. But when you live along the coast as I do, a long fancy trip to some distant isle is not necessary.
Leadership is about the big picture (vision), details (execution),and most importantly; people (relationships). And when it all comes together it is a beautiful thing.
As I have observed the ebb and flow of the tides, sunrise and sunset walks, I have come to once again appreciate the beauty of the journey. Remember, it’s the little things that make a big difference.
What little moments are you thankful for?
