Just because it did not work the first time does not mean it never will.
Too often I hear “we tried that and it didn’t work”
“Don’t sweat the small stuff” should really be “Don’t sweat the stuff you can’t control but where you can make a difference, tweak like crazy”
It may not roll off the tongue as easy but the nuance is important.
In too many instances you are almost there, the last mile could be the difference between success and failure.
Just because it did not work once, does not mean the strategy is not sound.
What separates the good from the great are those who pay attention to the details.
