A reminder from Eckhart about not getting ahead of ourselves in our pursuit of achievement. 

"The great, arises out of small things that are honoured and cared for. Everybody's life really consists of small things. Greatness is a mental abstraction and a favourite fantasy of the ego. The paradox is that the foundation for greatness is honouring the small things of the present moment, instead of pursuing the idea of greatness". 
- Eckhart Tolle, from The New Earth -
