Even the most hidden from view, inconspicuous things can have great impact on others and the world. Some may be unhappy with their inconspicuous role and chafe at their seeming unimportance while it would be better, and would help them, to realize that even the smallest things and their smallest efforts are important. Others do not wish to have an impact and only want to make themselves more inconspicuous, want only to have no effect on the world and want their lives to be lived unnoticed. This is a shame since everyone and everything cannot escape having some impact in some way and it would be best to optimize that impact. There is a group who wish never to be inconspicuous and will do everything in their power to display their effect on the world; they tend to overlook some of the best things the world has to offer as they bask in their own glory. A balance can be made, however: one can remain inconspicuous while learning about a new idea, one can be conspicuous when teaching; one can be inconspicuous when offering charity, but conspicuous when soliciting for it; one can be inconspicuous in leadership, but conspicuous about advocacy. Don’t you think being inconspicuous has its place?
