The Little Big Things by Tom PetersExpio staff are always looking for a great resource. This is a book that inspires actions that shape the best industry principles, uses and philosophies and produce a healthy and vibrant company tactic. We recommend The Little Big Things 163 Ways To Pursue Excellence. Peters gives fresh insight into the small things that make companies great. Often infused with his signature sarcasm and humor, the 163 chapters are worth every moment.

Tom’s new book, The Little BIG Things, is a compendium of 163 ways to pursue excellence—with tips ranging from the blatantly obvious, “Show Up! (It’s a Start.)” and “It’s All About … the Quality of the Workforce,” to the wildly counterintuitive, “Boring Is Beautiful” and “Reward DNK (Do Not Know),” to the often repeated, “The Customer Is ‘She.'” Begun as a repackaging of the Success Tips from our blog, this book became so much more as Tom worked and reworked its contents. Now, its main message is that EXCELLENCE is the result of many small tasks, all of which can be practiced and mastered. The Little BIG Things are meant to be sampled, a bit at a time. As Tom says in the Introduction, “My colleagues and I mostly expect you to read the book while sitting on the toilet. (Literally or figuratively.) That is, we hardly imagine that you’ll breathlessly read the whole thing from start to finish. Instead, I imagine you’ll look at this idea or that—and I obviously hope that a few will be compelling enough to induce you to take action.”
