THE LITTLE THINGS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE



There was a man taking a morning walk at the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide moved away, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die.

The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly and right behind him there was another person who couldn’t understand what this man was doing.

He caught up with him and asked, “What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make? This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water and said, “It makes a difference to this one.

IT IS INDEED THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE, so please don’t wait to have enough in order to help or start something, you can always start small but never remain small.
