Do The Little Jobs Well And The Big Ones Will Take Care Of Themselves

“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 little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.” — Dale Carnegie

Generally speaking we like the big stuff because it seems to make an impact. Huge tasks should equal huge rewards, theoretically. If you do a lot of little things really well, however, it reflects positively on your character. You seem like a person who gets a lot done and does a great job. The little tasks may not always seem exciting, but you have a lot to gain by completing them with the same passion as a larger project.
