The Power Of Small – by Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval (2009)

The Power Of Small

The title of the book says it all. When we look at the problems in life, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, to feel helpless to do anything. But the authors of this book ask us to look at the small things that we are able to do, instead of the impossible larger tasks. The book gives example after example of people doing small acts of consideration and kindness, and making a difference.

I love this quote near the end of the book:

“Each and every one of us has the power to leave this world a better place than we found it. But we would argue that we do so not by creating grandiose plans, or imagining ourselves as some part of a vast movement, but by the small day-to-day actions and decisions that, together with the actions of millions of others, can transform the world.”
