It’s often said that it’s the little things … that make the big differences. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment we’ll take this topic much deeper as we hear from the great Andy Andrews why we really should … sweat the small stuff. That and more in this episode.
Bob’s Thought of the Day
- One of the most powerful principles of human nature: “How you do anything is how you do everything.”
- A powerful lesson one of my greatest heroes, Booker T. Washington, learned from his employer, Mrs. Ruffner — a lesson that led him to a leadership position at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, founded for the higher education of African-Americans.
- How little things like “sweeping floors with excellence” can have far-reaching effects.
Interview with Andy Andrews
- That sometimes conventional wisdom is not only not conventional, it’s not the truth.
- How Leonardo da Vinci created one of the world’s greatest masterpieces by focusing on small brushstrokes.
- That Napoleon actually won at Waterloo. That is, until he lost (via a “little thing”).
- Why perspective is not how you see something … it’s how you choose to see it.
- How to determine your choices based on your will instead of your emotions.
- Why choosing to be offended means giving up your power.
- The power of asking “When” instead of “Why.”
- How a half nickel changed one boy’s life, and brought down an entire espionage ring.
