Wise Sayings

Someone said in an email to me today, "you're a good egg, as my Grandma used to say...".

While it is always nice to hear a compliment, the "good egg" phrase reminded me about my Grandpa. He used to say "don't sweat the small stuff". I've always liked this saying - short, to the point, and easy to understand.

I even find that I've said this to my own kids on more than one occasion.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who appreciates this catch phrase - lots of hits at Amazon - 17 at the time of this posting. Richard Carlson has an entire series, including "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff at Work" as well as DSTSS for Women, for Men, and for Couples.

The obligatory Google search culled up a decent haul as well - including a site.

Wow. I guess I won't sweat the fact that there is so much research I can do on not sweating things. :)

Oh yeah, and if you are wondering What About The Big Stuff? Well, Mr. Carlson has that covered too.
