Depeche Mode, Attention to Detail, and the Power of Scale

Depeche Mode is cool. Call it a hot take or call it simply that I’m old, but it’s my truth and I’m sticking to it. Their song, Everything Counts, came on the other day and the simple chorus played: 

Everything counts in large amounts

Everything counts in large amounts

Everything counts in large amounts

Of course, I’m filtering life through my coach, development-obsessed perspective. Let me tell you. I couldn’t not hear it as a siren song for the small, high volume parts of life that have tremendous (often hidden) consequences. 

Here’s a visual example. What if every time you brushed your teeth, you had a Jolly Rancher, instead. Two (or so) Jolly Ranchers per day..every day.. for years somehow adds up to Type 1 diabetes, excess weight gain, tooth problems.. You get it. 

It’s small, but “everything counts in large amounts.” Now, I know you’re brushing your teeth, but you’ve likely got tiny habits happening at sneakily large volumes. The question is, do you know what they are?
