Leadership Minute: Small Things


Dale Carnegie said, “Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the small jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.” Success in leadership tends to come in incremental steps. It’s in taking care of the small details that you achieve noticeable success in the large things. On your journey to success there are no steps so small that they don’t require your best effort. Take care of the small jobs and they will take care of you. In order to be a big success you have to be a small success.
