One of my mentors has said repeatedly to me: Little hinges swing big doors.
Stated a little differently, he was telling me that little things matter in big ways.
Another common phrase that I’ve heard multiple times is: Don’t sweat the small stuff.
I understand the sentiment, and there are some little things we don’t need to sweat, but I really love this idea from Bruce Barton: “Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things . . . I am tempted to think . . . there are no little things.”
In this video, I’ll unpack this paradox and say a little more about the idea between little hinges and big doors.
