Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval, co-authors of this book, own the creative agency Kaplan Thaler. They bring their work and life experiences together in a book that is part meditative, and part repetitive. It is an examination of how little things can make a big difference but, as you read through the book, many of the tidbits sound overly familiar. Don't let the previous sentence deter you from reading this book. Rather, take it out of the library instead of buying it. You will enjoy the read and won't regret the cost of the book.
The idea of breaking tasks down into smaller, more manageable tasks to give you a sense of accomplishment is not new. Nor is the comment that smaller, more attainable goals will give you quicker, more frequent mini-rewards.
One reminder that you can never hear too many times however, is that the digital age makes you visible and vulnerable. Every website you visit, every email you send, and every online transaction you make are out there to be held up for view Therefore, be careful, because even a small footprint can make a big difference.
This is a quick read, with many real life examples of the power of small. Perhaps after reading this, you will want to check out the whole book because, as the authors state, when you do nothing, you are doing something - you are closing the door on opportunity.
