Podcast Episode 143: Do a Little Thing

    Jan 23, 2023

    Little things can make a BIG difference.

    Listen in for a few examples of how this can happen, when I tell you about an “erotic goat,” a lady who committed herself to paying for at least one convenience store customer’s bill every week, and my grandpa, who threw Chiclets out of the road grader he was driving for the children on his route.  

    I know. All very different stories. But all involved small actions with big consequences. 

    And by the time you finish listening to this episode, you’ll know exactly what writer Ralph Marston meant when he said, 

    Little things done often can be more effective than big things done occasionally. Make a little positive difference enough times and you’ll soon discover you’ve made a big difference.

    A small kindness is a little thing you always have the opportunity to offer. Do it a hundred times, or a thousand, and you’ll change your life, as well as the lives of others, for the better.

    And by the end of this episode, I’ll just bet you’ll want to run out and do a little thing yourself.
