Why small is better than big?
Life is not about big things we do. We don’t do big things. We do small things which can be transformed either into big achievements or big failures.
Make big successes from small things. Not big problems from small things.
One day, my boss told me I did well on a very important meeting while I was sure I screwed it up. She was able to see small things which were powerful and to build an encouraging feedback for me. It made me feel grateful and willing to do better next time.
One day, my client told me I did wrong while I was sure I did everything as best as possible. She was able to see small things which were unimportant and to build a discouraging feedback for me. It made me feel frustrated and not willing to exceed myself next time.
Big problems born from small things, this is something that I’ve been frequently experiencing in my relationships. I’ve been wondering how it is possible to fight endlessly because of such stupid things.
– Don’t take that tone with me!
– Why you put it there?!
– Why you didn’t do this when I asked you to do so?!
Today, I laugh when we start to discuss such topics.
– Seriously? People have worse problems than that.
That’s why we decided to do differently when it comes to our baby. Every new step is applauded. Every new skill is applauded. Every new achievement os applauded. It does not have to be something big. The most important is to make it memorable. The most important is to pay attention to details. The most important is to show we care.
Do you care to notice what is done well instead of seeing what is wrong?
