In the summer of 1957, 12-year-old Ed Catmull was on a cross-country trip with his family, driving on a crooked canyon road with no guardrails. A car driving in the opposite direction zigged into their lane, and Catmull’s dad zagged in the opposite direction. Their car came two inches from driving off the cliff.
That’s how close we came to never seeing Cars, The Incredibles, Toy Story, and many other movies. Why? Because Ed Catmull would go on to start Pixar Animation Studios. Without him, those movies would not have been filmed.
Two-inch events change the trajectory of our lives. That’s true with sports, economics, and business.
God warns us to not “despise the day of small things” (Zechariah 4:10). Focus on the little things that make a big difference.
