Don’t ignore the details

I rediscovered a song recorded by Todd Rundgren back in the late 80s. The song, The Want of a Nail, I imagine was inspired by the proverb For Want of a Nail.

Whether it’s the proverb or Rundgren’s interpretation of it, the message remains the same. You can’t ignore the tiny things in life.

Big picture thinking? Nothing’s wrong with it, but don’t forget to think about the details every now and then.
