Petty Things

"Be master of your petty annoyances and conserve your energies for the big, worthwhile things. It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out - it's the grain of sand in your shoe."

The quote above is credited to Robert Service and a useful one in today's world.

How many times in a day that we let the small things annoy us and irritate us? The traffic crawl that we face early in the morning, the colleague who did not smile back when we did and other irrelevant things that we face day in, day out.

Keep your focus on your goal. Do let the trivial suck your energy. Learn to smile at the petty things and petty people. Be bigger than the small things and small people that irritate you - ignore them and get on with achieving what you have set for the day, and strive towards your goal
