“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
-Vincent Van Gogh
Sometimes life is overwhelming. What am I accomplishing? What major thing have I done today? Where is my life going? Am I helping anyone?
At my desk I have a notepad from Rifle Paper Co. with the above Van Gogh quote. I read this anywhere from once to a million times a day. It helps me clear my mind of the negative thought that I can’t do anything by myself.
All the small tasks I do throughout the day are great, because together all those monotonous, seemingly meaningless tasks build together to make something great. Sometimes the great thing isn’t great in anyone else’s eyes but mine (I do like crossing off the to-do lists- that in itself is a great and amazing thing).
Having cute desk supplies with quotes/ scripture is not only visually appealing to me, but also a great way to sit and think about Truth; and to diminish the lies that one, small person can’t do something great.
