Smallest actions = Grand Consequences

Took centuries to build. Image courtesy of Wikipedia.

“Never should we think our smallest actions
are not capable of grand consequences.”

Friend and fellow blogger, Patty Hebert, left that little nugget on Saturday’s post. We were discussing the merits of many people making small contributions so that the sum total is greater than the individual efforts.

The Great Wall of China was not built in a day nor was it built by one person. Your business will not be a success in one day. But laying a foundation one customer at a time, day after day, can lead to grand consequences.

    Social media. It’s that social part, connecting people and ideas, and sometimes prayers and laughs, hopes and dreams….that’s really cool…

  4. David says:

    And sometimes you never know that you are going to be the calm in someone’s storm.

  5. Patty Hebert says:

    Exactly! As Jeff has said before, “You might be the only Jesus that person sees, or in some cases, hears from.” Small gifts make a world of difference.

  6. David says:

    And because people are watching, that can be a scary thing. Guess we’d better do the right thing all the time and we won’t have to worry about it.
