Put the Shopping Cart Back!

How you do one thing is how you do everything. Or if not everything most things.

The discipline in the smallest things in life carries over to the bigger things in life. If you can’t be disciplined enough to put the shopping cart back where else does the lack of discipline show up in your life?

This photo was taken at Whole Foods in the space I was pulling into only to find a shopping cart blocking the space. How many times have you pulled into a parking space only to find a shopping cart there?

I turned the shopping cart around in the space to show the distance to the shopping cart return area. Look how close the shopping cart return was in comparison to the parking space. How long would it have taken to return it to that space? A minute? 90 seconds? As a matter of fact there was another one a few spaces the other direction.

If you don’t have the time to worry about the detail or the discipline of small things, the big things in your life will lack the same.

Put the shopping cart back it will help you start to lead a more disciplined focused and successful life.
