There's no such thing as an overnight success. What usually seems like a rapid rise was actually years in the making as someone honed his or her talents, network, and story.
Likewise, I don't think there's such a thing as an overnight failure. Detroit didn't go bankrupt in a day. And other companies, schools, or organizations don't fall in one evening. Usually, a series of poor decisions leads to a gradual demise over time.
All the more reason to pay attention - daily - to the details. That methodical work will eventually help make you a success.
It'll also prevent you from being a failure.
Sweat the small stuff.
