Sometimes it's not the big adversaries in life that you have to worry about...

Piranha by Richard WeisserSometimes it's the little ones! As an example, consider the difference between the ways that sharks and piranha attack their prey:

Unlike the large carnivorous shark which can suddenly strike at any time and inflict some serious damage with a single bite, the piranha travels in large schools, and when feeding, depends on sheer numbers to subdue their larger and stronger victim

Often, we take the proper precautions when we face an enemy of significant proportion. We prepare ourselves to face the potential shark attacks that we could encounter in everyday life.

However, often we let the little apparently insignificant gnawing issues slip past our guard. Before we know it, all of these small problems en masse can completely consume us.

How do you beat a school of piranhas? One at a time!

Richard...I was told by an elderly man years age that in business it's not the big things that will normally get you, it's the little things.  Because they are just a thorn in your side, we try to brush them aside without really putting them to rest!

Richard,

Very clever comparison. I guess we shouldn't let the little ones get away!
