Small Methods Lead to a Meaningful Impact Have you seen The Karate Kid? In the movie, Daniel, a teenager who was beaten up by classmates in his new city, started training under Mr. Miyagi, a karate master. Daniel’s first assignment was to wash Miyagi’s cars. Miyagi showed him how to wax the cars with a particular arm motion-“wax on, wax off.” Daniel also had to sand Miyagi’s backyard deck with a “big circle” motion. Finally, Daniel had to paint Miyagi’s wooden fence and house with specific “up, down” and “side, side” motions.
