In baseball, there are two leagues, the major leagues, and the minor leagues. The minor leagues are set up to practice and hopefully move up to the major leagues someday. Many of these athletes are very professional, yet if they accept their position as a minor league player. They will never know what it is like to play in the majors. We thought about this and how we could apply this to our life.
In life, there are small things that we need to address every day and significant things we need to accomplish. There is a stagnation though if we begin to major in too many minor things in life.
What is major to one person and minor is always a source of debate, but for the most part, there is one thing for sure, do your best with whatever is presented and then move upward from there. Due to lack of experience, some minor things will seem significant until they are mastered. As we keep mastering the minor tasks, it is an indicator that it is time to raise the bar and move up to the major leagues.
A good indicator is that if something is too easy and a little boring, it is most likely a minor thing or at least has become a little less significant. If we keep our integrity and ambition in check, there is no doubt to when it is time to raise the bar.
Through personal growth and awareness, we keep weary to when we are majoring in too many minor things. This will help change our perspective, so we can then start majoring in the major stuff of life.
There is a saying that states “Don’t major in the minor things.” The challenge is in knowing the difference.
