Things You Probably Didn’t Know or Notice
This post is from Lee Silber’s e-newsletter, which I highly recommend. It is always full of interesting nuggets of info and advice.
ARE WE REALLY PAYING ATTENTION?
Did you know that on average 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents . . . daily? Is the red light on a traffic signal on the top or bottom? I bring this up because you may be missing things as you rush through life. Here are a some more example of things you may not know or notice.
• The King of Hearts is the only king card without a mustache. (The King of Diamonds is the only king not carrying a sword.)
• In every episode of “Seinfeld” there is a Superman somewhere. Jerry also organized his cereals alphabetically on the shelf.
• The Amazon.com logo has a yellow arrow connecting the A and Z (they sell everything from a-z) and is in the shape of a smile (satisfied customers.)
• Have you ever noticed the nightly news often ends with an uplifting animal story to offset all the negative news?
It’s the little things that matter and many of us who are waiting for that big moment may be waiting a long time. The big idea could be buried in a small problem that needs solving. The fame and fortune we seek tomorrow may be the result of the little things we do today. That perfect life we so desire may be found in imperfect moments happening right now.
