“I used to think I knew everything. I was a “smart person” who “got things done,” and because of that, the higher I climbed, the more I could look down and scoff at what seemed silly or simple, even religion.
But I realized something as I drove home that night: that I am neither better nor smarter, only luckier. And I should be ashamed of thinking I knew everything, because you can know the whole world and still feel lost in it. So many people are in pain-no matter how smart or accomplished-they cry, they yearn, they hurt. But instead of looking down on things, they look up, which is where I should have been looking, too. Because when the world quiets to the sound of your own breathing, we all want the same things: comfort, love, and a peaceful heart.”
― Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story
At the end of the day, it’s our choices and decisions that shape our lives. And more often than not, it’s the small things, added up, that drive us to make big decisions. What’s ironic is that we’ve been trying to accomplish something big, forgetting that life is made up of little things. I guess, in business and in life, there are days when you just have to make decisions, no matter how tough they are.
