Never ignore small things
“WATCH the little things; a small leak will sink a great ship.” – Benjamin Franklin
A small wound can make a person feel very uncomfortable for days. It may even cause an infection, and if not properly diagnosed and treated, can lead to death. Small but frequent and unnecessary purchases can lead to financial difficulty.
Many times in our lives it’s the small things that cause a big trouble – the small wound, little purchases, little lies, a drip on the floor, a dog or insect bite, a small window that is often left unlocked. These are just small things that when ignored, may lead to different problems.
Never ignore small things, especially if there are children around – thumbtacks, staple wire, medicines, and cleaning/disinfecting products. Never ignore the great interest shown by a stranger and his uncomfortable inquisitiveness. Don’t divulge too much information. Listen to the “small voice” that warns you and makes you doubt something. Someone said, “Pay attention to your gut feelings. No matter how good something looks, if it doesn’t feel right... walk away”!
What are the small things that you have been ignoring for days and weeks now? What personal commitment do you intend to make in order to prevent little things from becoming big problems?
