Forget the planet, save the garden - SMALL STEPS!

" 'You don't measure your own success against the size or volume of the effect you're having. You gauge it from the difference you make to the subject you're working on. Is leading an army that wins a war really that much more satisfying than teaching a four-year-old to ride a bicycle? at our age, you can go for the small things and you do them as well as you can… ' Forget the planet, save the garden." 
...'Go for the small things and do them well.'  It would be his new mantra."
Page preceding this excerpt describes the satisfaction of  teaching a conscientious but slow-learning employee to read - in sixteen years.
