Perhaps you don't sweat the small stuff, but EVERYTHING is small stuff.

    Curious isn't it, how Helen Keller's many "small tasks" added up to a "great and noble task." For a person who was blind, she certainly had a keen vision.

    At some point in my adult life I thought that I could accomplish some "great and noble task," but at this point in my life I realize that the best I can do with what I have is to make the "small tasks" resonate with heart and passion--and perhaps that will make a bigger difference for those I encounter in doing the small tasks. This quote is a real keeper. Thank you.
