The Feel Better Project Daily

The free daily email that shows people how to change their thoughts, so that life and business becomes easy and fulfilling rather than stressful and overwhelming.

Take a look at these two quotes:

“If you don’t understand the details of your business you are going to fail.” – Jeff Bezos

And

“If you just focus on the smallest details, you never get the big picture right.” – Leroy Hood

These two quotes seem to contradict themselves… but they’re both correct.

Most of us – and especially those of us who are business owners – tend to focus on the details. That’s important – we need to be on top of things.

The trouble is, when we see something we don’t like, we often obsess about it.

That’s why we get upset when we have a bad month in our business.

Or we get angry when an employee makes a mistake.

We tend to let these things derail our day.

Yes, they’re important…

… but…

… they’re only details.

One secret to having more peace is to be able to zoom out and see the big picture.

While one dead tree in a forest is a potential problem, it doesn’t mean the whole forest is kaput.

So if we find ourselves getting wrapped up in a small detail that makes us feel bad, stop, take a breath and zoom out.

Perspective… it’s a wonderful thing.
