Why the Little Decisions we Make Every Day are of Infinite Importance

How little decisions compound

We earn success a little bit a time, in the moment to moment decisions that in themselves make no visible difference whatsoever, but the accumulated compounding effect is profound.

    Understanding that the effects of small actions build over time helps us do something we may have struggled for years — to start. Whether we want to be healthier or pick a more diverse panel of speakers at conferences, we can make big changes with small steps.

C. S. Lewis# once said, Good and evil increase at compound interest. That’s why the little decisions we make every day are of infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may go on to victories you never dreamed of.” 

Could you interpret the expression, “the devil is in the details” in this light? Rather than it being about perfection, it's about the small decisions.
