Little Things Matter

It’s kind of funny and sad how often we overlook the importance of little victories in the pursuit of large dreams. Positive feedback is powerful and motivating.

One work associate had spent four hours on a project, believing she was making progress, only to find out that everything she had done amounted to naught toward the goal.

Yes, she knew the goal, but she had been so excited to be able to contribute that she hadn’t been as careful as she should have been and had misidentified her data.

Been there; done that.

Game makers are masters are understanding this human need for positive feedback. Why do you think the first levels are so easy? Sadly, drug dealers exploit the same principle.

As a writer this principle is fundamental to engaging the reader. After all, why couldn’t the world end when the hero is having a good hair day?

Until next time, stay healthy.
