Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered why we spend so much time and energy thinking about the big challenges in our lives when all the evidence proves it's actually the little things that change everything? That's right...absolutely everything. 

New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews is known for his strong storytelling and unequaled perspective on principles that empower the human mind and spirit. The Little Things embodies his own approach to life and work, detailing for the first time some of the exclusive material that he uses to teach and coach some of the most successful corporations, teams, and individuals around the world. In his unique humorous style, Andy shows how people succeed by actually going against the modern adage "don't sweat the small stuff". By contrast, Andy proves that it is in concentrating on the smaller things that we add value and margin. 

"In a world where so many feel powerless, wouldn't it be great to feel in control? Then know this. Perspective can be more important than basic answers. 

"I am more passionate than ever about my search to notice that one thing...that one tiny thing that, when understood and harnessed, allows us to create a life of extraordinary purpose and powerful results. It's less about drive and will power than it is about understanding certain principles and why they work...every time."

Andrews provides common-sense perspective and a game plan for meeting various challenges, such as: 

  • Managing life in a society that seems to be constantly offended by something or someone 
  • Creating change that is permanent and not short term 
  • Dramatically increasing results by harnessing the fraction of margin between second place and first 
  • Understanding our spiritual connection with God and how that affects planning and outcome 
  • Identifying the very moment when asking the question why? multiplies the success of an endeavor 
  • Recognizing the smallest details that ensure the greatest success

Little things does make a lot difference in one's life. It's good to sweat the little things.

His very best!

I have read or listened to all of Andy's books! His other books were so remarkable that it was hard to believe he could top them! This book challenges me, like none other! Mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially, in myself for myself and in each of my relationships! I just ordered 10 copies of this book, in various formats, for others I believe in, including my children, managers, siblings, friends and my precious mother who is 82! Next month I will get 10 more! Thank you Andy!

A homerun for Andy!!

This is easily Andy's masterpiece. If you've never read Andy's work, this is an excellent place to start. I have no doubt that my investment in this audiobook will pay off in all aspects of my life, not least financially. Read Andy. Doesn't matter which book - you can't miss when you're reading his work. Thanks Andy!

Amazing-Powerful-Life Changing

Buy this book. I read 245 books last year (several by Andy Andrews) and this book is easily top 5. A good man with a good heart bringing a fantastically good message of hope.
Thanks Mr. Andrews.

Love the Non-Conclusion

I've always enjoyed Andy's writing and storytelling ability. This book helped me to get a better perspective on perspectives and how little things can make a big difference in the big picture of life. I recommend this book to anyone who thinks their efforts (as small as they may seem) are not making a difference in the world. The truth is that little things sometimes make the biggest difference of all.

Amazing

Andy Andrews has hit the nail on the head yet again. He has noticed and revealed truths for us all. This book is truly inspirational, and should be used as a springboard from which to dive into our new, more accomplished, and highly rewarding lives.

Not Andy's Best

I love all of Andy's books, till now. The book has plenty of nuggets of wisdom. The problem is the long drawn out pieces of the book that have no point. I recommend reading one of his other books and leaving this one on the Shelf.

Infinite wisdom

Like all of Andy Andrews’ books and I have read all but one (that’s next), it is filled with logical, infinite wisdom. His books are extremely well written and always interesting, while containing lessons that can change the uproar and direction of your life. I look forward to reading his next book and pray he writes another before I’m finished that one. Read them all, you won’t be sorry and you will be a lot better for it! Thank you Andy!!

Painful

This book is painful to listen to. I spent far too long listening to an introduction which berates other authors for writing boring introductions. I can't even begin to describe the irony. Go to the library and read the chapter titles. Save your money and time!
