Don’t Major In The Minors

Do you know anyone who makes a big deal out of what really isn’t a big deal in your mind?  I know… sometimes it is about perspective… maybe someone is having a bad day and the slightest thing wrong sets them off.

There are times though where we, all of us, need to examine if what is upsetting us is really worth being upset about.

Don’t let petty things like bad co-workers, bad bosses, bad moments control your day.  At the end of the day much of what they do may be irritating (minor), but it is not always major (life altering).

There are situations that are, and there are situations that are not.  Know the difference and treat them as such. 

Don’t get caught up with those that major in the minors.  Major, and focus, on the things that are truly important and need your full attention.

I’m cheering for you.
