PowerPhrase: It’s a minor thing

Last summer I gave an associate a stack of items for a project we were planning, and then our focus changed. In a recent conversation, I realized my materials were cluttering her office. I loved her response to my apology. She said:

  • It’s a minor thing.

Those words sound more honest than “it’s nothing,” yet they also are forgiving.
