“Life is in the details. Listen to C. S. Lewis describe how our small, day-to-day decisions matter.
Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of. An apparently trivial indulgence in lust or anger today is the loss of a ridge or railway line or bridgehead from which the enemy may launch an attack otherwise impossible.
While we fret the big decisions—jobs, family changes, retirement—the action is in the endless small ones.”
