How you do anything is how you do everything
It's the tiny things that you do when nobody is watching that add up to the person who's doing them.
It's the daily habits that we stick to, commit to, from that little bit of exercise when you wake up to the journal entry at the end of the day.
It's those little 'white lies' that nobody will ever know if they're true or not.
It's the respect that you show everybody, regardless of the label that society has put on their status.
It's being slow to anger and quick to forgive and move on with the little things and the big.
Like everything I write in blogs or books, I don't always get this right, but I'm trying. I know that it's getting things right in all the little moments that will give me the strength and practise to do it in the big moments.
Feel free to extrapolate a metaphor about a red squirrel doing a bang tidy job of burying it's nuts during autumn, so it doesn't starve in winter.
"How you do anything is how you do everything"
Martha Beck (probably, I can't find a definitive source for this well known quote)
