Zig Ziglar was required reading and listening once upon a time when I was in sales. He was usually motivating, generally entertaining, and always had a little down-home wisdom scattered through his stories.
One of the things he was a champion of was doing a little bit to make a large impact or change. In my 20s and 30s, the importance of that didn't really resonate with me. Why should it? I was still (more or less) immortal.
Unfortunately after reading an article in a women's magazine, I did the math. If I do each of their 'Five Minute a Day" items, my day will need to be 27 hours and 8 minutes - this doesn't count working or sleeping.
But I think I'll do a little bit to change this year - it might just add up.
