Red Deer Physiotherapist Writes:
I believe that success only comes when we conquer the small things in life first.
If we are unable to be consistent in the basics of our daily lives, then we won’t be prepared with the skills needed for the bigger things that come along. We must learn to start where we are right now, today. Being diligent in finding importance in what others call ‘small stuff’ is what sets those apart who excel in life from those that merely exist in it.
Small things come in the form of what might seem to be mundane tasks, like picking up after ourselves (dishes, laundry, putting the cap on the toothpaste), putting the shopping cart back in the corral ( instead of leaving it wedged against a post or curb…grrr…personal pet peeve), holding the door open for someone coming behind us or making our bed.
Making our bed. Now there’s a task we maybe roll our eyes about, or shudder because our mother’s voice still echoes in our head about it! A neatly made bed is a task surprisingly few of us do consistently. Even though it’s a personal discipline that is easy to do with a huge pay off to our personal growth. Have your doubts about how making your bed can be a key to your success in life?
