Richard Carlson wrote a book called, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, and It's All Small Stuff" in the late 90's. It has been a staple for self-improvement over the years, and has sold a bajillion copies. In the book he advocates for an appropriate work/life balance, correct prioritization of the important things in life, the rest - the phone calls, the emails, the work requirements are all minutia--small stuff. That's all well and good for work and life balance, and prioritization, but is it accurate to say the small stuff, or we might say the 'little things' aren't important? They most certainly are. We should sweat the small stuff, but with the appropriate definition of what that small stuff really is. How can our diligence and faithfulness in the small things cause increased success in the big things? What are the little things in life? How can we improve this aspect of our faith?
