Second hand on a clock is one of the most ignored or less significant hands on the clock. None of us really care about how many seconds have passed. We always care about the bigger goal, i.e., the hour or minute. But nobody thinks movement of the other two is the result of the continuous effort by seconds hand.
Lesson from this are:
- Smaller steps are important to reach your goal. One small step in the right direction means one step less to achieve your goal
- It may take a while to receive recognition, but your contribution towards the bigger goal is more important than mere recognition.
