Even the smallest step

11 12 2005


A tiny little improvement is infinitely better than doing nothing. For those tiny little improvements add up.
A small word of encouragement is far better than no encouragement at all. Just imagine what it might mean to someone.

Today you have the opportunity to make the world a better place. Much more likely than not, that opportunity will come in the form of something seemingly insignificant.

Yet though it may seem unimportant at the time, though no one may notice, a small positive act can have a big positive impact. Because it can create a positive momentum.

Even the small achievements are achievements. Even the smallest step in the direction of your goal will bring you closer to that goal, much closer than if you had done nothing.

When you’re able to take giant strides, by all means do so. When you’re not, then take whatever step you can, make whatever improvement you can, offer whatever kindness you can.

The positive momentum you establish and maintain will make more of a difference than you might imagine. Even the smallest step counts in a big way.

— Ralph Marston
