Small things matter, because I am only a small human being. I cannot at once listen to a symphony, I only hear the music of this moment, the sounds of now.
I could give attention to some qualities of the music, not to all instruments, not to all notes at once.
In learning we must think of the importance of small steps. We do not learn to play an instrument at once, but we learn to blow one note; and another one, and after some time we learn some more. And after some time we can play real music!
A Chinese saying: Do not chase for great happiness, because great happiness is very rare. It is all the little moments of little happiness that make a happy life.
Being exposed to big and long presentations with a lot of new points and bullets is like listening to a brand new symphony. Most of it you don’t hear. It is like flying a jet, too high, too fast.
Learning is like walking or like riding a bicycle, down to earth, slow, and the little things on the road are important.
