The power of small numbers is in their multiplying force.
One more doesn’t feel like a lot.
One less is manageable.
It’s hard to perceive a one-degree difference, but it makes the difference.

One more spot and it’s the difference between being in or out of the top 10.

The task or project ahead can feel daunting.
